    What is crowdfunding?

    Story

    What is the problem the project is addressing?

    Many schools and orphanages in Africa have no access to children's books let alone a library.

    How will this project solve the problem?

    We are tackling the issue by working closely with orphanages and schools in Africa by training staff, providing books with diverse characters and implementing a permanent literacy programme.

    Love Books Project has 3 objectives:

    1 Provide educational children's books to schools and orphanages in Africa.

    2 Establish a permanent literacy programme using the books we donate.

    3 Become self-sustaining from the sale of books and other items on our web store.

    Please support our cause through any donation amount or by visiting our web store to pre-order an upcoming cookbook, the sole purpose of publication is to raise funds for this project! If you can't donate today please share this link on your social networks. Thank you!
