Bringing e-books to African schools

Aid agencies hope e-readers will help revolutionise education in developing countries.



    An aid agency has come up with a novel way to improve literacy in the developing world.

    Worldreader.org  has been introducing electronic books to school children in Ghana and Kenya to encourage them to read.

    And thus far, they have been met with much success, even enticing children away from football during breaks.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from the Kenyan town of Kilgoris.
