NABU’s low-bandwidth reading app offers books to the 250 million children in developing countries who have virtually no access to books in a language they speak or understand. NABU’s goal is to transform the mobile reading app into a powerful learning engineering tool that accelerates children’s literacy gains and can be scaled quickly to support millions of children with the culturally appropriate resources they need to learn to read, on devices they already have access to at home.
