"Each pupil in Menara Primary School has a 3.5GB Kindle containing more than 308 titles including storybooks, question-answer revision papers, past papers, dictionary, atlas and various bible versions."

Enrollment at this school increased after this program began. Parents are pleased because they no longer have to buy expensive textbooks.

Great news!
There is an organization called WorldReader that also provides Kindles to schools in Africa. Their website is worldreader.org
