Awareness

Just to clarify to anyone who is working on this project, the first part of this campaign is going to be purely based on raising awareness of the problem.  

It will not ask for money or books.

Later on when we have a proper website up and running we will provide the option of donating money as opposed to books. This is for two reasons. Firstly because organizing shipping is an extremely complicated and expensive business, and secondly because a lot of the books that get donated to developing countries are either completely irrelevant or outdated. 

Many charities deal with this problem by accepting ONLY monetary donations, which they then use to buy new books that they know will be put to good use.

We will either send the monetary donations that we raise to one of these charities, or we will look into setting ourselves up as a charity in our own right. 

But for now people just need to know that there’s a real deficit in Africa, that sends ripples throughout their entire way of life.
