Back to School Special: Project LiteratureSep 1, 2017 When I Grow Up 0 Blog: News from WIGU
In Low-Income Countries (LIC) most schools don’t have textbooks. Most schools and communities do not have libraries. Most children, most families have never owned a book.
To help empower the children we stand with we are committed to helping them have access to school textbooks and reading books.
Sadly, textbooks, even in LIC’s, are not cheap. $5 to $10 a book – for a family who lives on $2 a day – is a huge investment.
As your children or grandchildren return to school and college here in the US or the UK, how about donating to help a child in Haiti start their new school session with a school textbook?
