When we met the earthquake victims in Sichuan, China in 2008, we realized they not only had to deal with the aftermath of a disaster but also had to face the school work and the college entrance exam that followed without the resources they needed. Though they had textbooks for English classes, they had no English reading materials. That year, we started a book drive to send them English books, and continued these efforts as the years passed.
When we started refurbishing computers, we began assembling an eBook library to provide English reading materials to those who receive our donated computers. We also distribute our eBook library to schools and other organizations with computers but without sufficient reading materials.
In July 2018, Rachel Gai, a ninth Grader, introduced “eBook Library” program of “We Care Act” organization in Kaifeng, Henan, China. On behalf of “We care Act”, Rachel shared the mission of “We Care Act” organization, stated the purpose of “eBook Library”, which is to provide the best English reading materials, and donated 40 eBook Libraries in USBs with total more than 40,000 eBooks to two education institutes “Better English” and “Small Peas Education”. During activities, Rachel demonstrated the installation of eBook and how to use eBook, taught one of eBook in the class, and helped the student practice verbal English. The students were very active in class, and asked Rachel many questions about eBook. As a member of “We Care Act”, Rachel has built a long term relationship with these two education institutes, and will promote eBook Library program in more area in Henan and other provinces in China.
