Pass Your Story, Change a Life - Book Drive for Swaziland

08/01/2018 to 10/15/2018
EXTON PA

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 group of high school and middle school student from Great Valley High School and Great Valley Middle School. This is our second book drive with African Library Project. We believe every kid should have right to be educated. But there are still a lot of places around the world where kids do not have opportunities to access to the power of knowledge - books. We want the world to be a better place. We cannot change the whole world, but we can change some people's lives with our efforts. We partner with the local libraries in our area including Chester County Library in Exton, PA; Ludington Library in Bryn Mawr, PA and Natberth Library in Narberth, PA. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to them for their support!

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

We are fortunate to have everything we need and to be able to access all the books and knowledge we crave for. But there are so many underprivileged kids in African who need books to see the world, to gain courage and resilience, and mostly importantly, to see hope! Your help might change their lives! Please help us with our book drive with 1000 books & $500 to cover the shipping cost!

About our African Partners...

Swaziland, a small, landlocked monarchy in southern Africa, is known for its wilderness reserves and festivals showcasing traditional Swazi culture. Marking its northeastern border with Mozambique and stretching down to South Africa, the Lebombo Mountains are a backdrop for Mlawula Nature Reserve’s many hiking trails. Nearby Hlane Royal National Park is home to diverse wildlife including lions, hippos and elephants. We are helping to build the library at Mkhuzweni High School in Swaziland.

Here are some ways that you can help...
