#Books4peace is a non-profit charitable campaign with the goal of collecting one thousand books and sending them to the Nigerian library. In 2017, an estimated 3 million children and young adults aged 6 years through 18 years were out-of-school as against the previous estimate of 1.7 million the year before" you can see why we must act so urgently.
Once delivered, these books will be priceless to local schools and the wider community. These we believe should be available as a basic human to everyone. Now this is where you come in to donate books or make online donations.
We’re not looking for coffee table reads, we will be accepting research books, academics texts (2012 editions to most recent), encyclopaedias, dictionaries, classic and acclaimed novels old and new, hardbacks and paperbacks.
In the face of such overwhelming odds, we really want to give this library the best chance for success and the greatest variety of texts for the community to read. The Nigerian library we envision with your help can become the citadel of learning, access to information, empowerment, hope for the community and peace.
Follow us on instagram, twitter and make sure to subscribe to the channel to see our upcoming film projects to accompany the campaign. Let’s begin the countdown to a thousand books4peace!
