Our office is filled once again with beautiful science books ready for our next science library!!

Thanks to the latest greenlight for girls event in Brussels and local donations, our headquarters is now stocked full of books that we can't wait to send to children across the globe.  Your donations to this project help make this possible to ship these learning resources from one part of the world to another.

Our science libraries, already started in Cameroon, South Africa and Senegal, are ready to go to Uganda - and also in Asia to an orphanage & school in the south of India.  Our next plans are also to start a library in Morocco.

At our latest events, we have collected more than 80 books in which our young greenlight girls have inscribed with inspiring messages in the front cover for the girls and boys who will receive them.  These books cover all subjects in science - topics which will help the students wish to discover the world around them.  The books are mainly aimed for ages less than 15 years old and we have collected books in English, French and Dutch in this last event which will help us send languages needed for various countries.

Because of our connections in these schools, communities and orphanages that have received our science books, we have enjoyed engaging them in our latest activities.  We have attached the photos from our Anything is Possible campaign in which we asked children from around the world to communicate this phrase in their language to instill confidence in their future.

Thank you for all your support - and look forward to our future news of where our libraries are traveling next!

Thanks to the great efforts of our g4g team, interns & school children, our office is now filled with science books just ready to be shipped to a school and orphanage in need.  Where next?  Our books will be headed to a special school in rural Uganda - we just need your continued support to raise the funds for shipment.  Thank you again for all your great help so far! 

Our next collection of science books will take place at the International School of Brussels at our g4g day on 29 November.  So, we will have more books to contribute to the next science library!

The books are piling up!

The greenlight for girls office is now full of beautiful science books thanks to a recent deliver from our contributors.  The books are all ready to go to our new and established science libraries around the world. 

What's the most recent delivery that just left our office?  Thanks to all your recent contributions and support, we were able to collect and send science books for all ages to a community centre in South Africa!  They are currently en route and we can't wait to see the children's smiling faces when then arrive.

As with all of our books, our g4g team and interns have taken the time to inscribe and write inspiring messages for children in another part of the world.

We have more books ready to go -- and some special children in Cameroon and Uganda will be the next to benefit from these learning materials.  

The books have arrived in the Cameroon!!

The children in a country school & orphanage in Cameroon are so happy to receive their new science books!!  Thanks to the collection of science books at our latest greenlight for girls day in Brussels, Belgium, we had 50 books ready to send to our partner in Cameroon.

For each of our partners throughout the world, we identify what types of books are of need to the rural schools and orphanages that we reach.  In the case of Cameroon, the request was for children's books in French and English that engaged the children to learn about science from the youngest age possible.  In their school system, unfortunately science topics are not taught until after the age of 15 years, so they wanted to have an impact to the children at a younger age to already prepare both their interest and their initial learning.

Mission accomplished for our first delivery of books!!  Thank you for helping us to make this happen!

We have 100 books ready to go to 2 new countries in Africa -- help us to raise fund for the shipping costs to get them into the hands of more children eager to learn and discover new ideas.
