Increasing Access to Quality Reading Materials

Increasing Options for Digital Learning in Rwanda

In 2014, Bloomberg Philanthropies partnered with the Imbuto Foundation, which was founded by the First Lady of Rwanda, to support Library For All in developing a national digital library through a mobile device reading platform.

The Library was launched on Rwanda’s National Reading Day, in June 2015.


  • 9,953 readers reached in five countries
  • 944,165 pages have been read since the library was launched in June 2015
  • 783 culturally appropriate electronic reading materials made available for free in the local language, Kinyarwanda, and English
