eDreams, one of the largest travel agencies and cheap flights in Europe, supports NGO Worldreader in the dissemination, through social networks, of his latest project of literacy in Ghana. Worldreader is conducting a pilot study in Ghana to determine the impact of e-books in schools, and is supporting on Facebook Causes to disseminate their work and raise funds. For every person who joins this initiative on Facebook through the month of November, eDreams will donate $1 to WorldReader.org. Worldreader has had a clear leadership in the use of electronic book technology to promote education in the places in the world with less access to books, an effort that could benefit millions of people. We are proud to support them in this pioneering initiative, said Bob Samii, Social Media Manager of eDreams. Worldreader is an example of how an NGO can use social media to publicize their cause. The pilot study Worldreader s iREAD is an important milestone for the Organization. Introducing electronic books in eight schools in Ghana, Worldreader will examine its impact among the students before extending the program to other parts of the world.
The Organization has all the permissions of the Ministry of education to expand the literacy program in all schools in Ghana. Electronic books are a great way to bring books to the places where the paper does not come. Although electronic books were intended for the world’s richest economies, these devices are ideal for developing regions. Today, 75% of mobile phone users live in developing countries, while the penetration of electronic books in those countries does not even reach 1%. We are facing a unique opportunity to use technology to achieve momentous change in education in these countries and we are delighted to have the support of companies like eDreams in this effort, in the words of Susan Moody’s Worldreader.org.
