Watch this short documentary about USAID's Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) which is providing the road-map for the USAID funded Pakistan Reading Project. USAID has concluded the baseline phase of the first ever extensive EGRA across Pakistan. The findings of this EGRA survey will provide direction for the USAID Pakistan Reading Program that aims to enhance the reading skills for 4 million children across Pakistan and build capacity of 94,000 primary school teachers to improve and assess reading standards of their students. This was the largest EGRA conducted to date anywhere in the world in which 33,600 grade 3 and 5 students from 1,120 schools across Pakistan in 37 districts were individually assessed.
