Selfpublishing.com, founded by Chandler Bolt, is a company that helps authors self-publish their books. The company has a mission to not only help writers get their work out into the world, but also to make a positive impact on communities in need. That’s why Selfpublishing.com has launched a campaign to fund 75 libraries in Africa this January.
According to the campaign, it takes 1,000 books to fully fund a library in Africa. With this in mind, Selfpublishing.com has set a goal to donate 500 books for every client that signs up for its services. Through this effort, the company hopes to raise enough money to fund 75 libraries and provide access to education and knowledge for countless individuals in Africa.
Why in Africa?
But why is it so important to fund libraries in Africa? Education is a powerful tool that can lift people out of poverty and provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Libraries provide access to a wealth of information and resources, including books, computers and other educational materials. In many parts of Africa, however, these resources are scarce. Funding libraries in Africa helps to bridge this gap and provide opportunities for people to learn and grow. Booksofafrica.org states that “Most African children who attend school have never owned a book of their own. In many classrooms, 10-20 students share one textbook. Many people in the United States take these educational necessities for granted, but children in Africa cherish books.”
