Sithara Nambiar's African Library Project

06/01/2016 to 09/01/2016
Nashua NH

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.

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

Being able to participate in this project matters to me because I believe reading is an important part of children's lives. The African library project is a great way to benefit these children with books. I am grateful for being privileged enough to be exposed to a learning environment with books, and I want all children to be given this benefit. After all Readers are Leaders!

About our African Partners...

Our African Library Partner in Sierra Leone is Kychom Secondary School. The books that I am collecting this Summer will be shipped to New Orleans before being sent out to Sierra Leone.

The Kychom Secondary School in Sierra Leone is a secondary community library. The books I will be collecting for this project should be preschool - 8th grade reading level.
