Check Out How WLF is Using Cutting-Edge Technology to Bring Books to Children in Need!
In 2002, after a visit to Nigeria, Andrew Kay, and his friend Dr. Anthony Cree, founded the World Literacy Foundation (WLF) in Australia. Nigeria, it seemed, was full of illiterate children with no access to an education, or even a book. Originally, WLF was set up to send second-hand children's books from Australia to Nigeria -- however, the children of Nigeria were consuming the books faster than they could be sent. In response, WLF switched strategies and started sending e-books, which were tailored children's specific languages and dialects. The e-books have been a huge success, and now WLF provides books to children all over Africa.
