The books that you have donated (via BetterWorldBooks.com) towards Leku Primary School and students are slowly but surely coming in- a million thank yous!
So far we have received 106 books [updated February 27th], but we still need a little more help to reach the goal of 120. If you weren’t able to send us a book yet, no worries! There’s still time and you can make these students so happy with a single book! You know you want to send a children’s book to the adorable students of Leku Ethiopia ;D
How are these books going to be used exactly?
Every day students come to my classroom during their break time to read, so we will use your donated books to have read alouds, reader’s theater, and free reading time, to increase the literacy rate in Leku, as well as build students’ love for reading. Also, any time I have a club meeting (Girls club, English club, HIV/AIDS + Grassroot Soccer club), students who come in early get to sit down and read your books!
I already donated, what else can I do?
First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! You are making a huge impact in these students’ lives. You can further help us by spreading the word- Email, facebook, twitter, tumblr, hand-written notes, whichever way you like :) Plus, eventually a thank-you note from my students will reach your mailing address.
