African Library Project

Help Us Read!

10/27/2011 to 04/30/2011

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.

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

Hi, My name is Margaret, I'm from Ghana and today I am a professional with one of the Big Four Accounting companies. Considering how far I have come, I want to make a difference in the lives of others who do not have the opportunity I had. And I want to start by helping them to READ.

We need to raise funds for shipping the books...

The books will travel over 5,000 miles to reach Ghana. You can contact me personally to arrange how to make a donation. Remember, no amount is too little!
