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
