Print in Classrooms: Books For Africa helps to supply classrooms in need

In addition to the lack of children’s decodable books, many classrooms in Africa have no access to “print” for children of all ages. Books For Africa is the world’s largest shipper of donated books to the African continent, with a goal to ship three million books in 2015. Books are generally in English or French (collected from individuals, schools, libraries, publishers, and companies across North America or France). Books For Africa has launched a program to print books in mother tongues and hopes to grow this program in the future.
