OkadaBooks is collaborating with ‘Teach for Nigeria’ to donate books to over 10,000 pupils in schools and we are so excited about this. In Nigeria, only 1 in every 10 children have access to the books they need for a proper education. This statistic is definitely devastating but you can be a contributor towards changing this. If you have slightly-used primary school textbooks and wonderful children’s story books, don’t let them waste away locked in cupboards covered in dust, begging to be read. Instead you, can donate them to this cause and help in shaping a child’s future. Drop off locations are:
- Teach For Nigeria. Education Hub. 1st Floor, East Wing. Lagos City Hall. Catholic Mission Street. Lagos Island. Office hours 9am – 5pm.
- Contact person: Augustine Akujobi/Emeka Agwu. 0909 860 0713.
– Oxbridge Tutorial College. 49 Sobo Arobiodu St, Ikeja GRA, Ikeja
If you do not have books to donate, but want to be a part of the movement, don’t fret. You can also help one kid get a textbook for school with only ₦500; and with ₦25,000, you can provide textbooks for an entire class! Amazing.
Visit care.okadabooks.com to help a child now.
Donation closes November 31st! 2018
Don’t forget: children need a good education to increase their options in life. They can’t compete for scholarships, contests and other opportunities if they don’t have access to books.
Do something, today.
