We provide books for people at all stages of their lives: from picture books for the youngest child just learning to read a few words right through to law books for lawyers in need of the latest case law and everything in between.
In addition, we provide training for teachers and librarians in how to engage young readers with books, provide funds for the purchase of local books and fund the refurbishment of libraries. Together, we hope that our work will create three long-term changes:
Children will value and enjoy reading. Their levels of education improve and they make more informed life choices.
Adults are inspired by reading. They improve and share knowledge and skills. They earn and manage resources.
Higher level students and professionals access wider opportunities for self-improvement. They contribute to a more effective and educated workforce and access greater income.
The following sections describe a few of our impacts on children, adults and professionals.
