In places like the Solomon Islands, many children face enormous challenges just to get to school. And yet sadly, they go through all that - only to arrive at a bare classroom.
Children like seven-year-old Grace don’t have access to the resources they need to help them learn at school.
Without access to quality educational resources, children like Grace face a lifetime of illiteracy and its consequences - discrimination, inequality, poor health and limited opportunity.
But Grace really wants to learn. She says, “When I grow up, I want to become a nurse to help sick people.”
To help children like Grace, Save the Children’s Library For All team have been producing a digital collection of books that can be accessed through an Android phone or tablet computer.
Many of these books mirror the local culture and ways of living, with age appropriate stories written by local authors. Fifty of the books written for the Solomon Islands are in a local language, Arosi.
You can help give a classroom of children access to the books through a Spark Digital Classroom Kit. Each kit comes with 40 tablet computers loaded with digital books and a learning application that can help build literacy and numeracy skills.
Please help place a library of books in the hands of children like Grace.
Names have been changed to protect the real identities of Grace and her family.
