Even with poor classrooms and no reading materials, Oroko village students are delighted to learn and ready to take advantage of their education. Books for Knowledge and Empowerment Project will provide textbooks, non-print curriculum materials, school electronics, and educational devices for Oroko Students in Cameroon. The purpose of this drive is to provide books for children in the remote villages in Cameroon, Central/West Africa. The books will be donated to the schools’ Reading Rooms/Libraries to promote literacy and reading opportunities to the students, men, and women in the communities. It will also provide generations of students easy access to the books, which will give them the opportunity to read, write, and do their homework. As a result, these students will perform better in schools and graduate successfully.
Books for Africa is ready to donate 22, 000 textbooks from K-12 for Oroko students in Cameroon in West Africa with a shipping cost of $9, 800.00. We have raised $1, 000 and have a balance due of $8, 800.00.
