Our Book Drive Organizers

Our volunteer book drive organizers collect 1000 books and raise $500 in shipping funds for each library. 

They rally their local communities to donate books; sort the books to ensure appropriate fit; hold a book packing party to get the books ready for shipment; and mail the books to our U.S. warehouse.

Along the way, they are educating Americans about the need for literacy and education in Africa and encouraging everyone to recycle the children's books they have outgrown.

Our book drive organizers are the best!
