Two year old Tiwonge Rebecca is one of the very young readers in Africa enjoying the books found in the ELI community libraries. Her father reports that he is asked to read Tiwonge her favorite book every day at least once, and of course she knows every word and sound. Her enthusiasm and delight are obvious.

Tiwonge is only one of the many children who now have access to books and other educational resources such as games and puzzles in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and soon Malawi. ELI is working hard to develop a culture of literacy and reading for the new generation of children - “A world of discovery, imagination, and information." ( Pam Allyn)
