African Library Project

Share your Blessings - Books

02/01/2018 to 05/31/2018
Edison NJ

We are working with the African Library Project to provide books to eager readers in Africa who have very few books. Please help us by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It takes only 1000 books and $500 (plus a little elbow grease!) to start a single library and make a huge difference in children’s lives.

This book drive is organized by ...

We are a team (Dhyanashri Raman & Archith Raman ) who wanted to have a positive impact on the lives of young minds.
Our goal is to provide opportunity for the young kids in Africa to have quality books to grow their knowledge and better themselves.

We believe that "Knowledge is power" and "Sharing our blessings" with light up the lives of many in need.

This is our motivation for us to set out a journey to collect as many books for all ages and setup a library for the young minds in Africa.

This is our first book drive project and would like all of you to participate, contribute and share your blessings and be part of the journey. !!!

We want to start a library in Africa because...

"Most powerful tool to change the world in to a better Place is Education" We are fortunate to get very good education in America. We would like to provide
the same opportunity to kids around the world who are in need. The first big step for us is to help start a library in Africa for those who are in need.
