BOOKS! Campaign 

Kenya's primary schools receive 35-50¢ per child per term for textbooks
and class readers.

Total government support for schools = $1.90 per child per year
Cost of one Math book = $6.50

The problem is in the math.

BOOKS! campaign is dedicated to supplying critical learning materials for our 23 partner schools. Your contributions make a visible difference. Performance scores are rising. Enrollment has increased. Girls are staying in school. We are helping to improve the futures of an entire generation.

This year, we target core subject textbooks: MATH, SCIENCE and ENGLISH.

All donations through May 15th will be dedicated to this special BOOKS! campaign.

Our goal: 10 copies of core subject textbooks per school

Your help will make a world of difference for Kendu Bay children.
