It's no secret that the continent of Africa is in pretty dire straits; if it's a social, medical, political, socio-economic, or education epidemic -- Africa is plagued by it. Education and literacy have proven to be among the most effective defenses against the types of challenges Africa faces. Their access to books, however, is as poor as their access to any other of life's sustaining necessities. Books for Africa is among the most fiscally responsible charities in the US, conducting its operations with integrity and succeeding --one shipment at a time -- in getting books shipped to and distributed throughout Africa. Please donate whatever you can to assist in the cost of shipping the books and texts to African ports for distribution.
