Books for Kids Charity Workshop

Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books, and implements literacy programs.

It was clear to their founders that an organisation providing access to age-appropriate books for low income children with little or no resources was desperately needed. Groups can visit the foundation’s headquarters and find out more about the great work of this charitable organisation and donate a number of books themselves.
