African Library Project

Creative Homeschoolers and Other Stuff Co-op (CHAOS)

Fort Worth 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.

This book drive is organized by ...

We are CHAOS: Creative Homeschoolers and Other Stuff Co-op. Our mission is to teach, inspire, and grow as a close knit community of diverse homeschooling families encouraging one another as we strive for excellence in our respective educational journeys. Our focus is to expand educational horizons by exploring a multitude of opportunities inclusive of different educational styles in order to give our children the freedom to grow into well-rounded individuals.

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

From some members of our homeschooling community:
Everett, age 8 says that starting this library in Africa is important to him because it helps people in Africa have books to read.
Eli, age 6 says that starting this library in Africa is important to him because it helps spread our books out all over the world.

About our African Partners...

We'll be sending our books to Malawi. When we get more information, we'll update!

Please contribute these kinds of books...

We will be starting a community library that focuses primarily on preschool-4th grade, with a secondary focus on 5-8th grade. We need secular books that do not focus on United States holidays, customs, etc.

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

You can bring your book donations to any designated CHAOS event. Other donation events will be announced.

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

We have some exciting ideas in the works, but are always looking for more! Check back for updates on fundraising events.

Here are some ways that you can help...

If you have books to donate, or would like to donate money to help cover the cost of international shipping, contact Ashley or Pamela.
