A non-profit organization called Worldreader is bringing eReaders to families around the world in hopes of putting “a library of books in the hands of families worldwide, using e-reader technology.”
Their latest success is getting 440 Kindles into the hands of students in a village in Ghana.
Here is more from the Worldreader blog: “The students understood that e-readers can change their life. It wasn’t a shiny gadget that has market value and can be traded for other goods. 11 year-old Deborah, whose little brother also got an e-reader in Primary, took Elizabeth and me into her home after school where her mother told me: ‘Deborah dreams of becoming a doctor when she’s older, and now she can read all about how to do that.’”
