How does it work?
Your readers come together in a race against time to narrate storybooks on Simbi. These narrations are added to Simbi’s global library and to Simbi Foundation’s BrightBox solar classrooms, reaching up to 197,000 learners around the world!

Simbi at School
Use Simbi as your school’s reading platform of choice! Your students will be motivated to read more books, more often knowing that their reading makes a positive impact on global literacy.
Simbi Foundation collaborates with communities to install BrightBoxes: digital, solar-powered classrooms built from shipping containers. Stocked with laptops, tablets, projectors, digital resources like Simbi, charging services, and more, each BrightBox can support up to 6,000 students per week.
