Educate Africa Club's African Library Project

Houston TX

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 Educate Africa Club is a club which meets in Clear Lake High School, and is dedicated to helping make a difference in the quality of education world wide.

About our African Partners...

The school we are raising books for is named M.C.A. Secondary School, located in Sierra Leone. The school is situated in the center of the town Magburaka, and has around 18 classrooms. The library will be for around 400 students and 36 teachers.

Please contribute these kinds of books...

The library built will be a Secondary Library, meaning it will consist of books in reading levels 4th-8th grade.

Types of books being collected:

Juvenile literature. Children’s fiction and non-fiction. Teacher's resource books for school libraries. Dictionaries. Encyclopedias less than 15 years old. Accurate up-to-date atlases. Thesauruses.
