Partner: READ International & what3words

READ International is an NGO which started in the UK and is now based in Tanzania. They work with young Tanzanian volunteers to rehabilitate school libraries and fill them with books. They have had 1.4m books donated and have created 72 libraries.

It is however difficult to find and get books delivered to rural areas without adequate address systems. Until now. READ International have trained their volunteers on the what3words app. They are using it to navigate to existing libraries, capture the 3 word address of new ones. Drivers from the local company are also using what3words to deliver the magazines and books.
