Penguin Random House
Through an innovative partnership with global publisher Penguin Random House, Save the Children leveraged Skills-Based Volunteers in Rwanda. Our School-Community Partnership for Education (SCOPE) project in Rwanda aims to improve children's literacy outcomes.
Two senior executives from Penguin Random House spent a week working with local Rwandan publishers. They showed how to balance the various elements of a book – from the story to the illustrations to the design – to produce high quality children's books.
