NEW YORK, USA – Room to Read and The Pearson Foundation have joined Nokia as part of the Conspiracy for Good campaign. The pair, dedicated to promote and enable education in developing countries, will become part of the narrative, operating alongside Nadirah, the main character. But it won’t all be fiction. Join us after the jump for more.
As well as becoming part of the story, Nokia and Room to Read have partnered to establish five libraries in Zambia – one of which will be constructed at the Chataika Basic School, located in the village of Chataika. It also plans to fund one year of holistic education for 50 girls in Zambia.
Additionally, Nokia and the Pearson Foundation have partnered on a one-for-one giving campaign at www.wegivebooks.org. Jump on to the website, and just by reading a free digital book online with a child, Pearson will donate a new paperback or hard-cover English-language book to Room to Read libraries across Zambia.
