Books for Congo (Shannon O'Rourke Kasali) - Democratic Republic of the Congo

Public schools also have limited books and many children and youth miss out on the opportunity to increase their knowledge and explore their world through reading. Someone once told me that it is easier to buy a helicopter than a book here. Bila Elimu Akuna Amani (Without education, there is no peace) -
