African Library Project

Campaign for African Library

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 two high school sophomores currently in an early college program where we will receive our associates degree by the time we graduate.

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

Living in America, people are given the privilege of having an abundance of libraries. However, we take this benefit for granted. In contrast to us, many children in third world countries dream of having an opportunity like this, yet they do not have the resources to turn their dream into a reality. As a result, we (two high school students) decided to help change the future of children in Africa.
