African Library Project

HOPE Club Book Drive

06/12/2013 to 12/31/2013
Lake Oswego OR

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 student led club at our high school. Our goal is to improve the quality of living and education in our community and communities around the world through volunteering, fundraisers and awareness.

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

We all have an incredible capability to inspire change in a world that desperately needs it if we can only find the time, energy, compassion and drive to do so. We are so fortunate to have access to the learning materials that contribute to our education; we often take these resources for granted, but other people do not have these same opportunities. Our hope is that in the future any person who wishes to pursue an education will have the means to do so.
