video | Write Our World – Multicultural Ebooks by Kids for Kids
Write Our World is a nonprofit organization based in the US that works to empower multilingual youth to embrace their languages and cultures while building skills for the future through ebook authoring. We host an interactive digital library of ebooks written and orally recorded bilingually by kids themselves. Authors develop skills in both their heritage language and English, thereby deepening their cultural pride and connection to family and community. Additionally, kids are able to create more reading material for each other in their heritage languages, to be accessed from anywhere in the world. We hope indigenous communities worldwide will take advantage of this resource!
