+ - Bringing Wikipedia to kids without access to the Internet->

Rozzin writes: When San Francisco-based product designer Aislinn Dewey and Wikimedia Storyteller Victor Grigas heard about an inexpensive offline reader for Wikipedia, they knew what they wanted: they want to buy ALL of them and give them to kids in remote areas to learn with.

"Every student today who has internet access is using Wikipedia in school to write papers, research assignments and learn about the world they're living in", they say. "Shouldn't everyone have the same access?"

Their ultimate goal? "provide a whole encyclopedia to thousands of kids living in areas without textbooks, computers, or internet to do their homework with."
