Through your gift, Ethiopian children will be able to embrace the joy of reading and feel the power of independent learning.
Remember the first time you opened a book? Ethiopian children haven’t had the joy of experiencing that. They face challenges in achieving real literacy because while school enrollment rates have increased, an estimated 45 percent of people over the age of 15 still cannot read. This is mostly due to the fact that there are virtually no books available to read in local languages. The Ethiopia Reads' Donkey Mobile Library programs deliver local language books to remote villages and schools so primary-age children have regular access to reading material. With accessibility to local language books, children will experience a new level of learning.
