Books for Kwara

I have not forgotten Nigeria! I am doing a fundraising this Saturday so if you live near me in the UK please come!
Enjoy a cake and coffee and help a child to read!
£1 is all we need to give a child a book to read!      

These children live in Kwara, one of the poorest states in Nigeria. School buildings are often falling apart and children have to sit on broken benches in classes of up to 100. We have taught the teachers how to teach reading which will help the children get a better education and a job. Being able to read gives them a future. At the moment most children only have a textbook to read. They need proper reading books. Just £1 buys a reading book written and published in Nigeria.

                                      These children are learning to read but have no reading books!

Your contribution of £1 will go straight to Nigeria where a Nigerian team of School Improvement Officers will then buy books from a Macmillan warehouse and take them straight out to the schools where they are urgently needed.
You are invited to cakes and coffee (or tea) on Saturday July 21st at 13 Kendal Close, Bebington. Drop in any time from 10am – 4pm. All I ask is a donation for ‘Books for Kwara’!                                    Many thanks, Caroline.
