Books for Botswana

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 ...

Memorial High School's UNICEF club is partnering together with the African Library Project to try to raise 1,000 books to be delivered to Botswana. Help us teens make a difference!

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

We as a high school club want to start a library in Africa as we see how priveleged we are to have many excess books to give to underpriveleged children. Increasing literacy, empowering others, etc. means a lot to us and we want to be leaders in our community and inspire other teens to make a change for the better.

About our African Partners...

Farzi Abhari is our shipping container manager that will be getting our books to Botswana. We will be mailing the books to their warehouse in New Orleans where they will be put on a ship to Botswana.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

This is for a Botswana JHS Library book drive, so we will be collecting 2nd - 6th grade level books.

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

Please deliver the books to Memorial High School in room T-6. This book drive will start from February 11th to March 8th. Each goal for each of our members is to donate 20 books, so to keep track of who is donating please put your books in a bag and put your name on the bag.

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

Everyone who you ask to donate books, you can also ask if they would like to donate a couple of dollars to help ship the books. Cash only please, as we are still in the process of setting up a Memorial Unicef bank account.

Here are some ways that you can help...

Donate books, money, boxes, and come to our packing party to pack the books and get the ready to ship!
