Benetech’s Bookshare initiative is set to empower Africa’s 20 million people who have reading barriers through increased access to information.
From October 28 to November 15, we invite the Bookshare community and book lovers all over the world to share their favorite books and the role these books have played in their lives. Our goal is to raise awareness of the importance of books and access to them for all, including people with disabilities.
For Junia Howell, PhD, dyslexia is not something to overcome, but something to embrace, harness, and celebrate. Learn how she uses technology and leverages her capabilities to shine.
Today we are celebrating an exciting milestone for impact at Benetech: we have delivered 15 million books to people with reading barriers through the Bookshare online library service and network.
Moses Chowdari Gorrepati, Program Manager at EnAble India, explains how accessible ebooks from Bookshare helped him achieve employment and independence.
