African Library Project

Jolee's ALP Book Drive

04/17/2017 to 06/30/2017

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 ...

We are Jolee, Ashley, and Sami Jo. We are grade 8th students from Calvin Park Public School, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

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

Our dream is to promote global literacy. We have high hopes of helping to improve education and make a positive change to the world as global citizens. If you believe in this vision, we urge you to step up with us and support our book drive. Remember, we can make a difference together!

About our African Partners...

We have partnered with a Sierra Leone Community to start a small library. We cannot wait to make a strong impact. :)

Please contribute these kinds of books...

Our aim is to collect 1,000 books in good condition (preschool - grade 8 reading level).

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

We have already collected over 1000 books from our school. Thanks for the support!

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

Our aim is to raise at least $658 CAD for shipping expenses. We have already collected $350 CAD.
