Forget shipping, handling, and book donation drives—this nonprofit is changing the world digitally, one e-book at a time.
The U.S. and European organization Worldreader provides free e-readers and e-books to students in sub-Saharan Africa. The lower cost of e-book delivery means that classrooms can enjoy greater book selection. Though most of the available books are written by African authors, partnerships with publishers worldwide contribute a well-rounded list of titles in both local and international languages.
Worldreader has supplied more than 196,000 e-books to date. The goal for 2013 is 1 million!
