Grow Your Reader Foundation (GYRF)

Building innate reader to become a leader

Grow Your Reader Foundation (GYRF) is a youth-led, government-approved non-profit organization working towards ensuring SDG4 since 2016. We provide free access to reading books and a curriculum to enhance reading skills while having different activities and projects to maintain reading habits among children. Our goal is to create an educational environment where children can grow and become sensible citizens and take ownership in bringing a difference in their communities. 


One day all children in Bangladesh will have access to the right creative learning environment which will build their innate reader to become a leader.



Grow your Reader will enable primary school going children to have basic skills through our advanced creative learning tools.


Core Values

Ensuring sustainable development of the society by developing cognitive, social and emotional skills through proper education.




A street library initiative is simple yet powerful: individuals can leave their old books in designated locations so that those who lack the means can discover and enjoy new books for free.

Mobile library and internet hotspot help to keep the light of learning alive for underprivileged children in 12 underserved communities in Bangladesh.
