“It was with exceptional enthusiasm and energy that I booked my flights to Ghana to participate firsthand in Worldreader’s mission to place digital reading devices into the hands of aspiring young readers.

Flying from Amsterdam, south towards Ghana – the first sub-Saharan country to declare independence – I got a sense of how vast and sweeping the landscape is. Gazing over a fellow passenger’s shoulder I was mesmerized by the endless, powerful, passionate beauty of the Ghanaian countryside. I considered myself privileged to be a part of Worldreader’s on-the-ground effort in the field for the short week I was there.”

Worldreader invites you to join our staff and supporters in Kenya for a week of travel in February or July 2020. You’ll meet, read and talk with students and teachers who are using Worldreader programs in and around the bustling city of Nairobi.

Then, travel into gorgeous rural Kenya for an immersive cultural and volunteer experience with our partners at the Richer Life Foundation. And, of course, no trip to Kenya would be complete without an opportunity to go on safari and see the wildlife up close and personal!
