They call me E-reader.

‘‘Amidst the turmoil and embarrassment of always being singled out in the school as fee defaulter, I made up my mind to help others.’’

When Kelvin’s small village received 25 e-readers from Worldreader loaded with 5,000 e-books, the mobile library was revolutionized and Kelvin took on a new identity as ‘e-reader.’ Kelvin not only brings the e-readers around the village, but he also organizes regular out-of-class activities and community events to further encourage reading. He says the attendance is always tremendous. ‘‘Students like the e-reader because, unlike the physical books, e-readers are easy to carry and can be read in darkness or broad daylight.’’

‘‘When students see me they call “e-reader! e-reader!” in a unison chorus.’’

‘‘My whole social service life has and is characterized by hard work, diligence and honesty. I am driven by the fact that a service to humanity is the driving force behind a happy society.’’
