Sun Books / Children's literacy education

Sub Saharan Africa has some of the highest illiteracy rates in the world. The majority of children have no access to books and basic education resources. Sun Books is an innovative digital solution to improve literacy outcomes for children aged 4-12 who are in classrooms in rural and remote communities, without access to basic literacy tools and books. The solar powered tablets provide an e-library of hundreds of books and other valuable literacy tools focused on the development of language, sounds, reading and writing. Children's life opportunities, confidence and wellbeing are increased. We also train teachers to develop their skills.
