African Library Project

"Books for Ghana"

12/10/2014 to 04/15/2015
Houston TX

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.

As VP of Social Media for The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, I will be hosting an event/fundraiser for The African Library Project now until April 2015.

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

I am very excited to partner with this program and their mission to start small libraries for African villages in sub-Saharan Africa that promote literacy, education and empowerment! This is also a great opportunity for children to recycle books, sharing the gift of reading with children in Africa. I believe knowledge is a powerful tool and what better way then to find it in books.
