African Library Project

Bavis Family Drive for Literacy

06/01/2019 to 10/15/2019
Ashburn VA

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.

About our African Partners...

Our library will be established and be maintained by the Abiriambati Child Development Center. This center is located in a rural, very low income area of Uganda.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

Please contribute books that are appropriate for US level pre-school to 8th grade.

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

Please contact Karen Bavis to arrange for a convenient time/place to pick up your donations.
