African Library Project

BCMI Diversity Committee Book Drive

10/25/2017 to 11/30/2017
New York NY

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 ...

The book drive is organized by the BCMI Diversity Committee at PwC, a group of professionals who share the same goal of promoting diversity to better serve our Firm, clients, and society. We leverage our differences to connect individuals and groups from different backgrounds.

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

The employees at PwC highly value increasing literacy, empowering others, and are committed to a higher purpose. The Firm is committed to giving back through charitable contributions, and we sincerely believe that donating 1,000 children’s books is an excellent way to accomplish this initiative.

About our African Partners...

The school that we are partnering with is Raruowa Kadera Secondary School, a public day school located in Migori, Kenya.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

Our goal is to collect 1,000 new or gently used books by November 30th. Books should be at the U.S. Pre-K to 8th grade reading level and can be anything from children’s fiction/non-fiction to young teen literature.

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

We will be reaching out to fellow colleagues, as well family and friends to collect books. If you are interested in helping on this project, feel free to drop books in donation bins placed on the 5th, 19th, and 29th floors, as well as the cafeteria, in the New York Office. Do not forget to spread the word! Tell your friends, families, and colleagues about this great opportunity to put those books to good use by donating them to this cause, right in time for the holidays.
