Tablets give African kids chance at education

PREV
NEXT

This letter is about kids in Africa who are learning how to read, write and many other different things on a tablet all by themselves with nobody else helping them.

When they first got these tablets, they didn’t even know how to turn them on. By the end of their first week using them, they already knew how to use many of their apps.

This is important to me because these kids have probably never seen a word written on a piece of paper, and it is giving a chance of education to these kids.
