eeem.org covers a large variety of multimedia eBooks

eeem.org is a project of up4change, an NGO with the mission to bring new educational opportunities with multimedia e-learning programs to illiterate communities around the world. While working with nomads in Northern Kenia since 2012 we have discovered that they use mobile technology with ease and enthusiasm.

Based on this experience we started to deploy newest tablet PCs for educational programs which integrate videos and other rich media content relying on tablet-based eBooks as a learning tool.

eeem.org makes the best use of technological progress and indispensable social skills of people: We educate barefoot teachers to become multipliers. They will spread mobile multimedia learning approaches to more people and will also document their educational progress.


“The program is very good. It helps us to become stronger.”
Danila, program participant, future barefoot teacher

“We never went to school. This program is a great opportunity for us.”
Moran herder, program participant
