This last year, Books For Africa has seen unprecedented need from African children, schools and health care providers. We are so proud and grateful to have provided children with reading materials during lockdowns, and put Merck manuals and e-readers in the hands of health care professionals across the continent, thanks to your support!
But the pandemic isn't over, and need for books is still higher than ever. During SpringForwardMN (May 1-11), we need to raise $2,000 to send a shipment to Somaliland! This shipment will contain Somali-language books, a special initiative of Books For Africa aimed at providing books in children's mother tongue. Books in the reader's mother tongue have been shown to help build a culture of reading and improve literacy.
Your gift will help put books in the hands of Somali children eager to read!
