COVID-19 Updates: doing good at home
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to challenge and disrupt communities around the globe, the African Library Project is working to continue to get books into the hands of eager readers. Below is a partial list of the actions we are taking, which we will continue to update:
african library project – one box
Due to a wonderful response to our ONE BOX project, we have managed to fill all the applications for libraries in our Malawi container! Please continue to save your gently used children’s books as space permits, for use in a future book drive, or ONE BOX project. We will update our website as soon as we have mailing dates for upcoming containers, so please check back often. Thank you for your support!
donating masks in the bay area
During this time of need, the African Library Project is also pulling together to support the San Francisco Bay Area we call home. We are proud to partner with HomeFirst to donate reusable face masks to homeless community members in need. For each $25 donated, we’ll send one mask to HomeFirst. Help us reach our goal donating 300 masks this month by donating. You can also create a peer-to-peer fundraiser on Facebook.
educational updates on the impact of covid-19 in africa
Working closely with our partners on the ground, we plan to bring you a series of online discussions and website content about how the communities and schools we serve are dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.
