Worldreader is an organisation based in Seattle USA with a mission to bring digital books to every child and their families, so that they can improve their lives. Worldreader works towards its mission by working with Partner organisations to bring BLUE boxes to schools and Libraries. A blue box contains e-readers, e-books and Worldreader’s expertise - everything needed to build a culture of reading in a community. In September 2015, Rafiki formed a partnership with Worldreader to launch and implement an e-reading program in the 14 primary schools and 3 secondary schools that we work with as well as a community e-reading program within our Training and Resource Center Library. 

Technology has surely arrived in our villages! Not only has the e-reading sparked excitement but also fueled the passion of our children, youth and community to read and improve their literacy levels.
