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.

My name is Jonah Gold and I am working on an African Library project as part of my Bar Mitzvah project.

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

As someone who loves to read, I can't imagine my life without books. Having books in my life means I am never bored. This project is important because in Africa the illiteracy rate is so high.Teaching children to read and be literate is one way to help break the cycle of illiteracy and help future generations.
