Libraries without Borders

BUILD LA: In 2016, BUILD: Latin America partnered with Libraries Without Borders to implement the Koombook Program in Ecuador to bring portable digital libraries to isolated communities. It's purpose is to increase awareness and education by spreading knowledge. After conducting a needs assessment of Ecuador's educational landscape, two team members traveled to Ecuador to formally introduce the program and demonstrate its technology. They met with nine NGOs, and have chosen to partner with 3 of them. This semester, BUILD will work with LWB to prepare the Koombook Program's implementation with the 3 chosen NGOs.
