A BOOK FOR A SMILE
Root For Books is a Non-Profit Organization dedicated to promoting literacy in Africa. Through reading children's lives can change for the better helping shape their future. A single book can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our goal is to provide books to schools in Africa to empower the minds of children.
SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
Here at Root For Books we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in spreading literacy in Africa. Our hope is with help from all around we will spark the minds of children and help them be inspired by the written words. We want to provide every child the luxury of unlimited access to reading.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE THROUGH READING
Literacy is one of the most critical skills for a child’s development, but Africa faces a widening literacy gap. In Africa, only two percent of pupils in lower primary school can read at the expected level for their age. One of the reasons for this is that children often do not have access to books.
Literacy is the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential. ~Kofi Annan
