Books for refugees

More people are displaced around the world than ever before, and thousands of families can remain stranded in refugee camps for years, for lifetimes, even for generations.

Refugee camps, which are initially intended to be temporary, often lack basic educational facilities such as schools and libraries. But with thousands of people spending years of their lives within camps, the provision of libraries and reading resources is vital. Without them, children can grow up in camps unable to read and without the skills to build their lives outside of the camp.
