Kindi is a social enterprise committed to creating a world where every child, regardless of their location or financial means, always has someone to read and share a story with. Our journey started in Lebanon, a country where 100,000s of Syrian refugee students struggle in school because they do not know English, an unfamiliar language used widely in the Lebanese curriculum. With limited access to English speakers at home, we developed Kindi to offer students on-demand virtual reading experiences from a mobile device. We have a long road ahead, but are encouraged everyday by amazing people just like you, who consistently answer the call when a student is in need.
