Education in the developing world
Rural Kids Print, Bind and Read
Kids in rural areas of Africa have few resources on hand to bolster their education, but in several areas of the continent, one of the foundations of education -- books -- is coming to them.
Anywhere Books has piloted a digital bookmobile -- a van outfitted with a laptop, laser printer, bookbinding machine and cutter -- in remote areas of Uganda to print free books for children since November 2003. Now the project has plans to expand to Ghana and Macedonia.
...
"The impact of giving away books is limited until you address the issues of the culture of reading, integration of reading into the school curriculum and training of teachers," he said. "They wanted to read their books, but they didn't necessarily have the reading skills to get through it."
A project worthy of support!
