Description of Organization:

The African Library Project changes lives book by book by starting libraries in rural Africa. Their grassroots approach mobilizes U.S. volunteers, young and old, to organize book drives and ship books to start or improve a library in Africa. The African Library Project’s method makes a concrete and personal difference for children and communities on both continents.
