Books are essential to every process of education, information, creativity and development. They are also an instrument for dialogue and a key tool in building democracy and social and intercultural communication. Last but not least, books are the irreplaceable medium of that pleasure of reading which captivates millions of human beings of all ages every day, in both the North and the South, throughout the world. With their noblest of missions and many tasks, books are central to the great effort that goes into increasing their role in the life of societies, especially societies in developing countries. Books are works of the mind which, through the variety of their contents and different forms of human expression, feed our shared intellectual heritage in all its diversity.

Our research shows that over 95% of children in the public schools in Wa Municipal do not have story books and enough textbooks to enable them learn effectively. There are over 60 basic schools in the Wa Municipal. The project will go a long way to enhance the quality of learning of these in the public schools. The objectives of the project include the following

  • To encourage children to read
  • To distribute books and toys to children
  • To activate and reinforce skills of children
  • To improve the critical thinking skills of children  We are in need of Used or New Story Books, Textbooks(Maths, English, Science, Information and Communication Technology-ICT, used toys and computers. We are looking for reading materials from grade 1-9.
