Correctbook is a social enterprise battling against illiteracy in developing countries. 250 million children do not have the school material to learn how to write. We developed a reusable notebook, to write endlessly. Correctbook sells a variety of innovative products and, subsequently, to donate (25% B2C, 10% B2B) reusable school materials to the slums of South Africa.
While on Holiday in South Africa, Correctbook founder Sam found out what the children really wanted: something to write on. He was surprised that the children did not ask for food or other basic need. They asked for pen and paper. These children wanted to learn how to write, but they did not have the materials to do so. The problem is that paper notebooks can be used only once. Back in the Netherland, Sam started Correctbook. A never ending erasable notebook, so that the children have writing materials they can use over and over again.
Correctbook wants to supply 1 million erasable notebooks to children in need before 2023. We have the obligation to tell the world about the underestimated problem of illiteracy and that we can give opportunities to children who need it most.
