What this site is all about.

It’s about teaching every child (and adult) in the world — even in its poorest, most remote and undeveloped regions — to READ, and giving them books, illustrated in colour, of all kinds, on all subjects, and in every existing written language.

What the world needs is a device costing less than $20 which does nothing but read books, but which runs on the power from its own solar panel and thus requires neither batteries nor a supply of electricity to charge them.

And that is just what we propose to give them, through our charity and with — so we hope — a little help from everyone.

The world doesn’t need

a nice $200 notebook with lots of

features, with which to access the

Internet and play games.
