There are several small-scale European-based organizations that we have supported for several years with the books that we collect. This has many advantages, both for us and for the projects we support.
Because of the small scale, there is a direct and personal contact between the organization in Europe and the project in the developing country. Therefore the cooperation is clear and we have a good idea about what is happening with the books that have been donated by Read to Grow.
We therefore ask projects always to send feedback after the arrival of the books in the form of a letter, photographs, and film material. In this way, we can be sure that the books have arrived and are used correctly.
Some so many adults and children go through life without ever having read a book. In developing countries, books are scarce and very expensive.
Without books, the door to knowledge and progress remains closed. Many people remain in a vicious circle of poverty and illiteracy, instead of developing their talents and bringing change to their community through knowledge and experience.
Categories | 7 Book categoies
Both existing organizations and potential new participants can apply for books.
It is important to identify which categories of books your project needs.
Books for ages 0 to 4 years. For example, prereading books, picture books, books with a large font size and a few sentences per page.
These are books and magazines for ages 5 to 10 years. These books are written simply. The font size is generally large and therefore easier to read.
These are books and magazines for ages 11 to 17 years. The text is generally more difficult and the font size smaller.
These are books/novels and magazines for adults.
These are educational books, book series and readers designed for lessons in schools such as: mathematics, geography, spelling, history, biology, etc.
These are informative books and magazines dealing with certain topics such as: machines, dogs, plants, astronomy, cars, the human body, etc. We have these books available for all ages, but the biggest part is mainly intended for secondary school students.
We will treat your application after you’ve completed this form and we have received it from you.
