RAWLI believes that education is a proven way out of poverty, so it promotes reading around the world and empowers youth to lead the change. The organization has built libraries and digital classrooms in Tanzania so that students can have access to English language resources. RAWLI is currently working with two primary schools in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The Germany Primary School where the first library and technology centre was built and now serving 400 students. The Uhuru Mchanganyiko Primary School for Blind and Disabled where the donations of braille language books and writing slates have helped a lot of students.
RAWLI also believes that bridging the digital barriers and helping Tanzania become technologically literate will improve the quality of life, so they expanded their tech lab and provided students access to the internet, laptops, and tablets. The organization has introduced the app “Swahili Bubble Bath” from Overpass and the students loved it. But students want to learn English, so RAWLI in cooperation with Overpass has released the app called “Swahili to English Bubble Bath” available on Google Play and “Swahili To English Bubble Bath: RAWLI Version” available on iTunes. It is a special version of the “Swahili Bubble Bath” game but specially made for RAWLI (Reading Around the World) Students. Instead of hearing words spoken in Swahili, they are spoken in English.
Overpass is so honoured in building apps to educate and help people. We would like to send our best wishes to RAWLI, students and teachers working together to bring knowledge and technology all over the world.
“GPS Tech Lab Expansion Brings Smiles” article shows images of students having fun while discovering what technology has to offer. You can see the curiosity in their eyes while their big smiles show how excited they are to learn more. Your donations will be much appreciated and will help in empowering world change through education.
Here’s a video from RAWLI which shows how we can work together in bringing literacy around the world to have a better future for our children.
