My name is Stephanie, and I am a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Mozambique. I am a high school teacher in the province of Nampula, in a town whose name sound like the local language word for cookies
I am working with an organization called Books for Kids Africa. They have already provided me with a small start up collection of children's books in Portuguese (the national language) which my high school kids absolutely adore. There is however, a larger collection that can be bought which includes both child and young adult books (even Harry Potter!) Lucky for me, my very generous Church family has already raised about half the money needed to get the expanded collection.
Books are very expensive in Mozambique, and thus very rare. Very few people have access to books at all. Books teach us and allow us to have experiences that aren't our own. Help me bring them to cookie-town
