Ebooks Change Starts With Books Ebooks

Books change lives. That's why this holiday season we want to fill as many classrooms in sub-Saharan Africa as we can with books. With the right books, girls like Veronica can continue to learn, grow and succeed in life. Join us by contributing today.

How We Do It

Kindles in Schools and Libraries

Most of our new projects start with 5,000 e-books (on 50 Kindle e-readers).

With our partnerships and expertise, we can implement new digital library programs in sub-Saharan Africa for less than 30% of the retail value of the books and technology delivered.

Worldreader Mobile

Worldreader Mobile is a reading app coded and curated for the developing world.

Our flagship app works on almost any device with a data connection and screen size larger than 128 by 160 pixels.

All Java feature phones, Android devices, Windows Mobile phones, languages, and character sets are supported.

Our Books

Our library of 11,000 books has been built in partnership with over 160 publishers and authors from around the world. Readers in developing countries will find themselves and their worlds represented, and new worlds, both real and imaginary, are always only just one book away.
