Text Books, Reference Books For Africa
Supplying Books To Africans From America
Books are Paper Gold!
Whereas there is a shift in a paperless culture, Africa has lagged behind because it also requires electricity to run the equipment on which to access e-books. There are other reasons why it is easier to read paper backs than e-books in Africa.
Help us address and bridge the reading culture divide.
Collecting Books To Send To Africa
There are various educational disciplines and different levels of instruction called grades. We have been engaged in collecting books since 2010.
We shall send 1,000,000 text-books to Africa by end of 2015
We are known by supplying text books!
We are known by mobilizing friends/volunteers to collect books for us!
We are known by sending text books to those who need them most!
Help us distribute over 1,000,000 test books to Africa.
The books go to: Libraries, schools and homes.
This is where you come in:
1. You may have books, stationery or other things you want to give out. It is helpful to us as long as it helps a benefactor, student or school.
2. We ask you to enable us collect, package and ship the books.
Have a look at our work so far!

A LIBRARY AND WHAT ITS BENEFITS TO A COMMUNITY ENTAIL
ROLES OF A LIBRARY/EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE CENTER:
-Different people benefit in many ways. The ways include researching and accessing information from books, Internet, magazines, CDs’.
-Students benefit, improve on note-making, reading and listening skills.
-The library will have assistants available to offer after school or holiday remedial assistance.
-In order to enable students improve on their academic performance, there are some criteria to fulfill: preparedness, access to a comfortable reading place stocked with books.
-We hope to open up our libraries and schools to many students. They will receive help in form of remedial and homework programs.
-We shall work with communities under our community attachment Program. In this we shall introduce students to principles of integration in the world of work.
-We shall have a resource center equipped with job placement facilities. We shall help prospective students explore their opportunities while at the same time train them in post graduate qualifications as they prepare for work.
We hope to share a Library/Educational Resource Center that contains all disciplines including: writing, research, theater, cyber programs.
- A Library/Resource Center creates a sense of discovery. It is that opportunity to access knowledge. It is upon the reader to make that information into an intellectual content and wisdom.
Science, Medicine, Engineering, Mathematics and Vocational Courses
Not only will the users find a large collection of books but some of the most sought after text books.
It is our hope that the beneficiaries who visit a Library/Educational Resource Center, will be excited to see the diverse ways people make use of the Library/Educational Resource Center,
it’s about viewing an exhibit, or expressing the culture of a community you might not be familiar with or being a safe place for young people.
It is a place where people will come to be with others.
Through use of the Library/Educational Resource Center, people will have an opportunity to share experiences and fill in each other.
A Library/Educational Resource Center is a transformation institution.
People see the opportunities in how the library/resource center can have an impact on their community’s highest biggest issues.
The Library/Educational Resource Center gives to everyone an opportunity to meet people and participate in a community that may be different from one’s own.
In a library/resource center one is surrounded by books and computers. This is exhilarating and it makes one feel optimistic and have confidence. In this case, it includes having someone in everyone’s life- a librarian- who is there to answer any question one might have, to help one get the information, to suggest to one what one might want read and think about next.
According to John F. Szabo, "we are cultural institution of the world. The challenge is to make sure we are nimble/ resourceful and able to change- from making use of technology to ensuring that the public educational resource center/ library remains that most democratic institution."
Beneficiaries will access well preserved, protected, and organized content. But that will not be all. Users will find opportunities where resource center/ library is a place where people contribute and generate content, where people tell their stories, where the stories will be preserved for time to come.
The fact that the whole world will be at one's fingertips by just walking into it will not only be empowering but also influence the way Africans seek information. This will be a very big shift from the traditional peer to peer, but will involve using concrete references.
Ways of getting information in Africa by students

Empowering Communities to Read in Africa
Africans living outside Africa are part of the Diasporas. There are many living in different continents all over the world. This message goes out to them: You all have a role to play to make Africa rise up to the levels and standards of living similar to the countries you call a 2nd home. Join hands with those who have decided to change Africa for the better. This is a model you may like to add your support to. This is what we do at Africa Empowerment Communities.
This is possible by:
1. Establishing an organization that collects, ships and has a depository for books in Africa.
2. Linking with educational facilities
3. Establishing innovative means of popularizing book reading
4. Stocking competitive, cutting edge and well written books.
5. Establish an accessible venue in Africa.
