In celebration of International Literacy Day 2023, we aim to collect or raise funds for 10,000 books for 10,000 learners in our 50 Spot communities.
All books purchased through this giving page will be bought or printed in Ghana with a focus on relevant text books and books by African authors.
At EduSpots, we believe that books have the power to change lives, spark imagination, and foster a love for learning. The Big EduSpots Book Drive is aimed at giving learners in our Spots equal access to inspiring and relevant reading materials.
Our community-based Catalysts run regular EduLit and Edukidz clubs for different stages of literacy development; however, many of our Spots have relatively empty book shelves, waiting to be filled, or are reading the same 100 books again and again.

EduSpots exists to connect, train, and equip over 250 local ‘Catalysts’ – a mix of teachers, students and community members – who create and sustain transformative literacy and STEM opportunities through a network of 50 education spaces named ‘Spots’ in Ghana and Kenya, with a focus on female empowerment and environmental sustainability.
EduSpots as a concept has sprung from the grassroots with volunteers in Spot communities and beyond playing a central role in decision-making and the strategic development of EduSpots, with local leaders constantly inviting new volunteers to join our growing movement of community educators.
In the process of our work, we are ultimately creating a network of active citizens, engaged in developing their home communities through education; students observe the volunteerism they benefit from, and become future community changemakers.
