A huge thanks to everyone who supported and contributed to the Books for Kids Africa project for the Escolinha Estrela da Manha! On August 9, BKA delivered 200 children’s books in Portuguese and gave a full-day training on the care and use of the books.
The collection includes everything from fairy tales and fables to Mini Laruousse dictionaries on dinosaurs and the human body. These books and accompanying activities will be incorporated into the curriculum in addition to individual reading (picture-looking) time.
The goal is for the books to open up a whole new world through reading for the students. But the kids aren't the only ones who've been deprived of quality reading material.
