Our Books to Africa Partners
It takes a village to help supply children with quality books to read. Currently we have four USA teachers and four African schools partnering in this literacy project. As we add new USA partner schools, we will be able to add more African partners.
Each US school collects new or gently used books to send overseas. They are responsible for raising funds to pay for postage and shipping the boxes to their assigned school. There is no required amount of boxes that must be sent each year. Every box of books make a difference!
Our African partner schools are devoted to improving the education of their students despite the challenges such as extreme poverty, lack of resources, and/or overcrowded classrooms. They welcome children's books for a variety of reading levels from kindergarten to grade 7. Early primer style books are especially helpful for beginners who are learning how to read English.
Starting in September 2016, we will begin sharing videos about our schools, cultures and languages. These short videos allow children to naturally connect with each other and contribute to the world student community.
