About Me

Reading to the Others (Diavazo Gia Tous Allous) was established in January 2015 in Athens of Greece. Our mission is to make access to education equal to print-disabled persons. According to the World Health Organisation, a print-disabled person is "a person who cannot effectively read print because of a visual, physical, perceptual, developmental, cognitive, or learning disability".

Our actions and initiatives are:

  • The recording of audio books for visually impaired persons.
  • Multi-sensory reading laboratories in schools, companies, and adult minority groups.
  • Live readings to the elderly in Nursing Homes and patients in hospitals.
  • The organization of various events to raise awareness of this inequality to the access to education.

Our network of 8.083 members-volunteers across 3 cities and in the span of 8 years is working hard to ensure equal access to literature and academic books. We have recorded 131 books, 70 of which are works of literature and 61 are university books, 600 children have benefited from our actions, and 4.196 live therapeutic readings to the elderly have taken place.
