Amazon Kindle Books for Children in Africa

Amazon Kindle Books for School Students in Africa

Gift of Reading for Children of HUMBLE School in Uganda

Providing people with resources for learning enables people to improve their lives and the lives of people in their community and the world. Change starts with education and understanding. The Amazon Kindle provides a delivery system of digital ebooks for supporting the education process in areas where printed books are not feasible or available. Using eBooks for education and entertainment also reduces the drain of our planet's natural resources. Learn more about education in Africa and the children of HUMBLE School here, "Education is a Foundation for the Future".
"Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books."
--Bell Hooks
Pastor and Mission Leader, Dave Norman of Crossroads United Methodist Church in Ashburn, Virginia explains how Kindle ebooks can help the children and staff at HUMBLE School in Mukono Uganda Africa. He also uses SKYPE video conferencing service to connect with others in Spain that explain the Worldreader program. This type of effort requires a collaborative effort. The underling goal of this mission includes establishing real relationships for solving real needs. A young man shares his story about the value of relationships in this video.

Worldreader's mission is to make digital books available to all in the developing world, enabling millions of people to improve their lives. They identify schools, train teachers, work with communities, and partner with publishers to bring millions of books to underserved children and families in the developing world.
"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

  2. An update to this story can be found on WorldReader website.

    A year ago, Worldreader officially launched “Books for All” in Ghana. A few months later, we went to Kenya.

    Today, we’re adding another great “first” to the list. The Worldreader movement to transform reading in the developing world will be heading to Uganda! Right, Uganda! Can we get a shout-out?!?

    Why, you say? What’s the big deal about Uganda, a country in East Africa?

    Well, for starters, it’s a really big step towards reaching our goal of giving one million kids – 1,000,000! – access to books by 2015. Imagine...
