African Library Project

Vic's Kids African Library Project

01/01/2015 to 12/01/2015
San Diego CA

The African Library Project brings gently used books to an African community that has lots of eager readers but very few books. Please help by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It only takes 1000 books and $500 to start a single library (and a little elbow grease!)

This book drive is organized by ...

Vic's Kids

Promoting Peace, Happiness, and a Desire to build libraries in Africa.
What is your PhD in life?

We are impassioned to give a little of ourselves to help children of Africa seize a brighter future. By this, we express our compassion and love to inspire the next generation through sharing the opportunity for children to immerse themselves in a world of books.

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

We are on a mission in San Diego to obtain books that will fill libraries in Africa. By this mission alone we feel the need to expand our compassion to those in Lesotho, in southern Africa, and to heighten awareness of the need of building a cross cultural link between our countries that supports literacy through education and multicultural exchange.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

Please contribute these kinds of books for a primary school library: Books at U.S. pre-school to 4th grade reading level.

Here's how you can contribute your books...

We have two donation centers for dropping off books. One in central San Diego (4581 Wilson Ave, 92116 S.D.) and also in South Bay San Diego (3794 Alaska St, 91254 S.D.). We may also pick up books on request granted you may have a substantial amount for pick up if you further away in distance. Please contact us when you may want to drop off books and or if you would us like to pick them up from your location.

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

We are seeking donations to pay for the shipping of the books. Checks may be sent to Victor Cuevas
