Library For All is a nonprofit that exists to unlock knowledge to those without access to books in developing countries, at a much lower cost than building physical libraries. Our Library platform delivers ebooks to low-cost devices such as tablets, mobile phones, and PCs, and is accessible in low-bandwidth environments via mobile phone networks. The Library provides access to educational content that is culturally relevant and available in local and international languages. Library For All aims to strengthen the educational ecosystem across the developing world, thus improving global literacy and global development initiatives.

Plain Ink

Plain Ink is a social enterprise harnessing the power of books, media and storytelling to support communities around the world to gain the practical skills, tools and insights needed to build a sustainable future.
We do this by producing and distributing culturally appropriate and stimulating literacy and learning materials, while also meaningfully engaging individuals, communities, local organisations and governments to actively contribute to shaping a better future. We use the money that we raise through our publishing activities in Italy to spark new educational activities in India and Afghanistan.
