Reading to the Others is a Voluntary, Non-Profit Organization whose aim is to read to people who can’t do this themselves.
Our Vision is that all people, seeing or blind, can read The House of Sleep, Foucault's Pendulum, or any other book they wish.
We implement this vision through three basic pillars of actions:
Α. Recording of Audio Books (literature or university textbooks) for people who can’t see.
Β. Live Therapeutic Readings to people who belong in vulnerable social groups (children of typical and atypical development, elderly in nursing homes, illiterate prisoners, cancer patients in hospitals, and people who live socially secluded in their homes due to health issues).
C. Actions to Raise Awareness regarding the issue of non-equal access to knowledge and education for everyone, through Multi-Sensorial Workshops for children and adults.
Until today, Reading to the Others activates in Athens, Chania and Heraklion Crete and it is supported by a network of more than 4,500 volunteers.
