Worldreader.org’s Co-Founder Colin McElwee Talks to BBC’s Sophie Ikenye


Yesterday, Colin was asked some questions by BBC’s Sophie Ikenye about Worldreader’s “innovative project”. He spoke about e-readers and why they will make difference in Africa and the rest of the developing world. When asked about the choice of e-reader tecnology and what’s in them for African families, Colin answered “They address the problem that education systems have had in Africa where paper simply doesn’t reach.” You can hear the three minute interview as it aired on BBC’s Focus on Africa.
Colin and Zev are flying to Accra today for a week of meetings before the iRead trial. Stay tuned!
