Summer Reading for All!

Dear AfricAid supporters,

It is now summer vacation and time for us to enjoy digging into that ever-growing "must read" list of books or devour that "beach read" we've been waiting all winter. Whether reaching for that book on the coffee table or pulling out a kindle, a myriad of stories are just at the tips of our fingers. But for many of our students in Tanzania even coming face to face with a textbook is a rare luxury. What a gift a book is to a hungry mind, eager to learn.

We at AfricAid, passionately believe that education is the only way to truly uplift individuals and communities from poverty. Your gift of a textbook is so much more than just providing books to a classroom, your donations gives the incomparable gift of knowledge. Through your support of this project, you are helping to provide the tools our students need to grow, learn and become agents of change. 

Thank you for your support as we move closer to our goal of providing textbooks to 10 full classrooms in Tanzania.

Asante sana,
