The African Library Project changes lives book by book by starting libraries in rural Africa. Their grassroots approach mobilizes U.S. volunteers, young and old, to organize book drives and ship books to start or improve a library in Africa. Their method makes a concrete and personal difference for children and communities on both continents.

Project enVision U.S. is committed to its goal in making education more accessible, both locally and internationally. This Book Drive and the collaboration with the African Library Project is part of Project enVision's commitment to furthering access to education across the world.


Last year, Project enVision and the African Library Project successfully completed a book drive for Sierra Leone. Over 1,000 books were sent there and an entire library was built. Currently, kids there are enjoying the thrills of having a place to escape to and just enjoying the books overall.

Thanks to everyone who donated or helped in last year's book drive!
