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.

At Only 4 Unity, one proverb that we really believe in is Ubuntu, which means "I am a person through other people." Ubuntu involves a belief in a universal bond of sharing and respect that connects all of humanity. Through charity, we believe we can all help one another achieve new heights previously thought to be unattainable. it is with this spirit, that we are very excited to work with The African Library Project to place a library in Sierra Leone.

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

We believe in the spirit of creating a bond with people around the world through charitable work. It is through this bond, that we can effect the world and bring change.
