Refugees need books

"I have read about women who have succeeded. I believe I can succeed too." - Yvonne, Kakuma Refugee camp

Books give refugees like Yvonne in Kenya a chance to build a brighter future

65.6 million people around the world have been displaced. Many have no choice but to seek refuge in a camp.

In one of the world’s largest refugee camps, Kakuma in Kenya, over 70,000 children share a single one-room community library.

But books offer refugees the chance to change their future. 23 year old refugee Yvonne used books to succeed in school, and now she has a scholarship to go to university outside of the camp.

Sign the pledge and send a message that all refugees should have books. When 300 people pledge, we’ll share with Yvonne that people like you are backing refugees in their fight for a better future through books.

    Will help us reach 300 pledges?
