Book Aid International

From 2013 to 2015, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation supported Book Aid International, in collaboration with the Kenya National Library Service (KNLS), for an e-learning pilot project in Kenya.

The project contributed to improving children’s access to reading and learning support materials, in addition to the pilot usage of tablets and e-readers in three KNLS libraries. Local librarians were also trained in the usage of the e-resources, in order to maximize the resources’ impact. Furthermore, brand new books were provided to another 18 libraries in Kenya, as well as assistance in developing their children’s programs.
