1.2 billion children don’t have access to the text books that provide an opportunity to learn in a classroom. They remain trapped in an extreme poverty due to illiteracy and low level education.

The devices are pre-loaded with local, national and international educational content tailored to improved learning outcomes and help children escape the cycle of poverty.

Akello, 10, Grade 5, Uganda

“I like to read books, although we don’t have any books or a library in our school… Today, in our class, we got a Sun Book tablet with many interesting books. I am very excited.”

The Problem

You can help foster a love of learning and reading - one classroom at a time!

Do you love books? How many texts did you use when you were at school? Your schoolbooks may not have been your favourite reads but chances are they were vital to your education.

In 20 million classrooms around the world, there are children going to school lacking textbooks and other resources crucial for a quality education.

How can teachers teach and how can students achieve their best when they have no books? That’s where the Sun Book tablet can help bridge the gap!

  • 90% of classrooms in developing countries have no electricity
  • 10-20% higher income for every extra year of education a girl receives
