Worldreader receives Bezos grant

Jeff Bezos has just made a personal $500,000 pledge to Worldreader, whose vision is to use mobile technology (e-readers and mobile phones) to help make digital books available to all.

In addition to its existing e-reader programs in Kenya, Ghana, Uganda and recently Rwanda and Tanzania, last week Worldreader sent over 1,000 e-readers to 2500 children in 20 more schools in Kisumu, Kenya, as well as launched a new e-reader program in South Africa.
