DONATE A BOOK from our Amazon wishlist and we will make sure it gets in the right kid's hands. Books are listed with current prices so that you can immediately see the impact you are making on a child's life.
Think of your favorite book as a child, the one that most captured your imagination from page one. Did that exercise make you smile?
A child born into poverty would most likely be unable to complete such an exercise because most have never owned a book, and many do not have access to books to read on a regular basis. With your help, we will provide school-aged children in Jamaica the opportunity to experience a variety of genres and culturally relevant books, including fiction, folk tales, world classics, and poetry. Students will build their vocabulary, and reading skills while developing their self-confidence.
Help a child's dream become a reality today. To see how you can help, please visit our Get Involved page.
