“Literacy is the key to all education. We are looking towards the future where technology will play an increasingly important part of our literacy campaign, not to mention that access to technology often accelerates the learning process. We may not be able to help every child but we have a responsibility to give each child the tools to help themselves. The Freedom phones and tablets will be loaded with learning and education apps to help children, adults and teachers in their quest for knowledge and integration into our digital world, a necessary component of an economically active citizen,”
