Another science library has left the office and on to an area of the world that needs it most!  Thanks to your generous contributions, we have managed to package up a number of books that are now en route to the Democratic Republic of the Congo!!

With our g4g Ambassadors from the Congo along with our HQ team, several boxes have been put together to benefit local schools and orphanages in the Congo.\

The boxes have left the g4g headquarters thanks to the donations from all of you, from local schools wishing to donate their books and from greenlight girls in our recent events who wish to share the books that they have grown up with.

In the boxes includes -- several language learning books from French to English, discovery books of nature and science, chemistry learning, what makes things work, and lots more examples of science, technology, mathematics and engineering skills building that we have been able to collect and pass on.

Soon, the book shelves will be filled in local community centres and orphanages in the Democratic Republic of Congo - thanks to all of you!

Our office is again inundated with more lovely, colourful science and math-related books!  Thanks to our partnerships with schools and for our greenlight girls, we have several boxes of books in English, French & Dutch that are ready to be shipped out.

Where are they headed to?

The funds that you are providing will help us send these books to the Democratic Republic of the Congo for a small science library installation at one of our partner schools.

How are we getting the books ready?

For the past few weeks and for the next few, we have our greenlight girls' interns working on several projects in our office.  Our interns are young students of all ages who wish to contribute to greenlight for girls by working on initiatives to reach children around the world and encourage them to study science.  One of the projects is our Science Library -- so the girls are helping to inscribe our newly donated books with inspiring messages for the children in the DRC to see.

What is next?

Our office will be a buzz of activity in these coming weeks as we get ready to ship them to the school in the Congo.  Thanks for all your help to make this happen!!

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.
