ECHOING GREEN: UpStart with Tanyella Evans

May 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

CONVENERS.ORG MEMBER EVENT

Come to Echoing Green’s UpStart, hosted in partnership with Be Social Change on Thursday, May 25th at 7:00 p.m. Join a moderated conversation with Echoing Green Fellow Tanyella Evans on the role of technology as a tool for inclusive and quality education, the future of philanthropy and more.

Knowledge is a human right. But while the global illiteracy rate has fallen over the past decade, millions around the world–including 250 million children–remain unable to read and write. Part of the solution is to make it easier to get books into classrooms.

Today, 95 percent of the world’s population is covered by cellular networks, and access to mobile devices is increasing. Library for All, co-founded by Echoing Green Fellow Tanyella Evans, developed a low-cost digital library platform to bring ebooks and cloud-based libraries to communities in Haiti, DRC, Rwanda, Cambodia, and Mongolia – making Library For All well on its way to ensuring everyone has access to knowledge.

Don’t miss Echoing Green’s UpStart, hosted in partnership with Be Social Change on Thursday, May 25 at 7:00 p.m. Join a moderated conversation with Tanyella on the role of technology as a tool for inclusive and quality education, the future of philanthropy and more.

Come for the bold ideas and stay for networking and refreshments with the socially-inclined and curious.
