BOOKS 4 AFRICA

THE STORY:

I am collecting books Used books which will be shipped to Kenya and donated to Schools to Promote a reading culture among African Kids.

So far we have managed to collect enough books for the first shipment. We are buying from local Charity stores which sells donated books at rock bottom price. The biggest Challenge is the shipping cost to Kenya. A 20 feet container to Kenya is about 4000 USD. that is what we are hopping to initially raise for our first shipment.

Every year in America, Thousands of books are disposed when they are no longer needed. On the other hand, many students in Africa struggle to get and acquire useful textbooks that can be used in their studies. In some cases, many public schools dispose books they are facing out every so often, unknown to them this books could prove very important to some kid in Africa. When I went to school in Africa, I remember having one text book among five of us and we would wait on each other in order to finish our school work sometimes ending up copying each others work. Lack of reading books also weakens the students academic opportunities cause the more they read the better they understand school work. No matter how hard working a student is, if they do not have the material to study with, their work may never stand the test of time.
