Kindles!!! A new fun way to read.

May 12, 2015

11174240_10153247436279344_6793211191873296131_oWe are excited to have received a generous donation of 10 Kindle e-readers to accompany our other 4 Kindles.  This creates so many more opportunities for our kids.   E-readers have many advantages over physical media for us.

Books are expensive in Nicaragua, and there are many free, or highly discounted, Spanish books available

  • Kids can now all read the same text at the same time in our reading groups (we hope to soon also bring the Kindles once a week to our small rural school in Santa Ana for the teachers to use).
  • Reading from electronic tablet-like devices is fun for kids and even more of a novelty than books, making it fun to read.

Thank you Jonna and Fraser Stanley Jones for making this happen!

Note:  If you have a Kindle you are no longer using or would like to donate a new one as Jonna and Fraser did, you can mail them to Empowerment International, PO Box 1215, Lyons, CO 80540.
