We are changing the face of literacy in Africa in places where there are no books and children are waiting to learn to read.
Our focus in Africa is the expansion of use of our solar powered tablet device – Sun Books. Millions of classrooms in Africa are located ‘off the grid’ and have limited educational resources and no books. We have designed and developed the solar powered tablet device to support classrooms where there is no internet or electricity. Our tablet device is a toolkit of hundreds of resources, such as textbooks, audio and video books, and interactive learning content. These educational tools are placed directly into the hands of students and teachers, where previously a textbook may have been shared with a whole class. The pre-loaded content on our low cost device offers a library of bi-lingual local and international books for the classrooms. We are rolling out the device in the Gulu region, Uganda with our own team, working in partnership with schools, teachers and students.
