Try South Africa and the African continent. These children do not have books and cannot afford to buy them they are so terribly poor.

Well yes, but first I think you have to take into account that actual paper books are becoming obsolete, lots of kids use e-readers these days. But if your point is them not being able to afford books, let alone readers, there's always the public library [assuming your town has one] I grew up just outside a fairly major city so that wasn't an issue for me as a kid, plus the one in the school. I grew up not owning very many books, but had easy access to them and was an avid reader. I think kids without books or access to books is really sad. The books I did on were purchased for under a dollar at used bookstores, little paperbacks. When I was finished with some I'd peddle them back to the used book stores and buy others.
