The voluntary, non-profit organization Reading to the Others is a group of volunteers whose aim is to read for people unable to do so on their own.
Those are people with sight problems, blind or aged people who cannot hold a book in their hands, elderly people in hospices, children in child care institutions or illiterate imprisoned individuals.
Driven by our motto “so that they can listen through our eyes and read through our voice” and motivated by the belief that everybody is entitled to equal access to literature, the volunteers participating in Reading to the Others carry out live reading sessions to a growing number of institutions in Athens, Heraklion and Chania in Crete, and Thessaloniki in Northern Greece.
At the same time, our volunteers read and record books and works of literature in order to enrich the Audio Library for the Blind.
Reading to the Others was legally authorized as Non Profit Organization (NPO in July 2015.
