What is good about this program is the radical Muslims that fear and educated woman can't stop this. These children will use these tablets to self educate. Then they will educate the younger children. The cycle of ignorance is being broken.

Thank you for this encouraging story Rose. Those little machines may be the start of a big bright future in helping these children out of poverty and a knowledge of what the rest of the world is like, how the rest of us live and how to get there.
