About 20 of the PCVs in Senegal are working together with our communities to bring books to villages and school communities in Senegal through an NGO called Books for Africa. I am planning on giving books to the 5 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school here in Podor. Some of these schools have small libraries, whereas a few of them have no library at all. This project will be funded primarily through the generosity of people like yourself! We need to raise $8,000 to pay for the shipment of the books. If you can give a small helping hand of a couple dollars even, I will be grateful as will the students who will benefit from this project! As someone who spent much of her childhood with her nose in a book, I wish that students here had those same resources and access to knowledge.
Bring books to Senegal by donating here!
