marathon runner to promote a culture of reading among Kenyan youth through Pocket. This is aligned
with The Eliud Kipchoge Foundation’s mission to promote access to education in underprivileged
Speaking during the signing ceremony, Eliud Kipchoge, EGH noted,

“The Eliud Kipchoge Foundation works in the areas of health, environment, and education. We have set up a library in Nandi County where we have equipped books that our local youths can access. Pocket will be very useful to our local youths in Nandi as they can come and access the internet at the library, download educational materials, and access this information when they go back home where they have no internet access”.

Pocket, previously known as Read It Later is Mozilla’s social bookmarking service for storing, sharing, and
discovering web bookmarks. The tool provides offline access to curated and personalized learning
materials. This will be useful in areas with limited internet access and in promoting access to educational
materials for our youths

“Mozilla is keen to identify and work with individuals whose values resonate with ours and is
always forming partnerships to advance mutually beneficial programs that support the
needs of communities; Mozilla’s partnership with the Kipchoge Foundation is definitely one that
resonates with Mozilla values.

Noted Lindsey O’Brien, Chief Marketing Officer, Mozilla Corporation. Today pocket has over 10 million users globally.
