Kenyan National Library Service readership has tripled through partnership with Worldreader. And Grey Gecko Press is a part of that, with all our titles made available to the company free of charge in perpetuity.
Several years ago, we heard about Worldreader, and were eager to become involved. They distribute free Kindles to readers in developing areas throughout the world, centering their efforts in Africa and South America.

It’s one of the ways that Grey Gecko is proud to be a socially responsible member of our global society.
