WITH ACCESS TO EDUCATION WE CAN DO AMAZING THINGS

In the United States, our ambassadors collect, sort, and pack gently-used books to ship to specific African communities. They organize book drives in local schools and neighborhoods and raise modest funds to ship the books to our libraries.

In Africa, we work with communities to build these libraries. They receive the books and organize them into libraries to serve local African communities. Along the way, the U.S. donors learn about Africa and develop closer connections to the people in the recipient communities.

We work with community leaders, local governments and the community to build sustainable libraries.

Affordable and hygienic-sanitary protection is not available to many women and girls in Africa, which has serious public health consequences.

AG connects young girls to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Unfortunately, almost every child in Africa, especially the girl child will grow up without this opportunity.
