You may remember we blogged last year about the charity project BookBridge Mongolia, dedicated to helping educate Mongolian children by creating and maintaining a library of English-language books. This year again we’d like to ask for help on their behalf. If you have any English-language children’s, picture or youth books (appropriate for ages 6-16), please consider donating them to this very worthy cause to help the children of Mongolia out of poverty and into a bright future.
The BookBridge team can best articulate their own needs. Here is a press release from them:
“Dear AbeBooks Customers,
Not all school children have big school backpacks filled with books. In Southern Mongolia, we experienced what it means to learn English without any books. Last summer, jointly with AbeBooks, we took action and established a library with 13,000 English books, providing more than 25,000 children a basis to help themselves.
With your help, we aim at establishing three more English libraries in Mongolia next year. In order to reach this goal, we need your help:
We look for used English children, picture, and youth books. Easy lessons with a lot of pictures help the most. Please keep in mind that they are intended for school children aged between 6 and 16. All donations are welcome.
By quickly checking your book shelves at home or asking your local neighborhood to support this initiative, you can find out if you have used books which can positively impact the life of thousands of school children in Mongolia.
Please send your book donation to the following address:
BookBridge, Kuehne + Nagel, Midpoint Park, Minworth, Birmingham B76 1BL
Many Mongolian school children look forward to your donation.
