Books for Africa’s goal is to supply books to help children receive access to an education and to opportunities. Educational access helps end the cycle of poverty and create a better quality of life than previous generations. Because of economic crises, poverty, war, malnutrition and lack of educational resources 40% of school age children in Africa do not attend school and 46 million have never set foot in a classroom.
