Interview: Jon McCormack – March To Read

Interview: Jon McCormack – March To Read

 

Children’s lives are transformed by the Kindles distributed by The Kilgoris Project.

 

My buddy Jon McCormack has always been one of the most generous people I know. I first met Jon in 2009 on a workshop in Ladakh. I remember thinking, how cool it was that he worked with Amazon on the Kindle. Over the workshop Jon would talk about his trips to Africa and the school he was building. I was impressed- This guy from California was building a school… in Africa! Then, last year I read on his blog that he had given a load of Kindles to this same school. Ok, now, that is just really cool! So when Jon told me he was doing it again, I had to help. Please listen to this incredible story about a village in Africa called Kilgoris and the “The Kilgoris Project”.
