Partnership for Literacy – One Million Books for Oromia (Jote Taddese) - Ethiopia

Project Goal: $15,300

Current Progress: $6,235 (41.00%)

Holidays 2019 Update

This holiday season, author Michael Evans is holding his first Boundless Books fundraiser for this project, creating an opportunity for book lovers and storytellers to come together to make an amazing impact with the power of books. The thesis behind The Boundless Book Project is simple: books can bring everyone in this world together towards creating a future that is boundless in opportunity, but only if the stories and knowledge can be accessed by everyone. Our goal during #theboundlessbookproject is to supply 22,000 books to children in Oromia, Ethiopia, by fully funding this campaign by December 31st

A Minneapolis based East African community has partnered with Books For Africa (BFA) to organize a literacy campaign and bring 1 million English reference books to multiple communities, schools, and libraries in Oromia region, Ethiopia. This is a globally coordinated collaborative project that will help provide vital learning enrichment for students in subject areas of basic literature, math, chemistry, biology, physics, technology, agriculture, and health education.

Be part of the movement to pave the way for better literacy and transform the lives of thousands of young students. Your support and donations will make a real difference in developing tomorrow's leaders who will bring a brighter future for their families and communities.

To date Partnership for Literacy has shipped 110,000 books to Oromia region in Ethiopia through our ongoing partnership with Books For Africa; we are currently fundraising to send our 6th 40 foot shipping container, which will deliver an additional 22,000 books. These books have been delivered to schools and communities across the region, providing the necessary supplies to students and families who are eager to learn!
