Our Current Needs

It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out to people whose lives are quite different from their own.

—Katherine Paterson

Adopt a box of books to help Child Survival Aid Ghana library project for children in need of books.


Child Survival Aid Ghana is fortunate to be supported by fruitful partnerships with individuals and organization who keep the flow of books so that we can keep the flow of books going out to schools where they are vitally needed.

However, we need your help. Did you know that Child Survival Aid Ghana never asks its beneficiaries to cover the cost of shipping books? While there are organizations that require shipping to be paid, we know our recipients are asking for help precisely because they have no funds available to them.

If a school or library has not had funds to purchase books in years, they will not have funds available to pay for shipping. For schools in deprived areas to reservations bereft of books to libraries and other agencies reaching out to serve populations of children who often don’t own a single book, Child Survival Aid Ghana provides books to fulfill their needs.

Covering shipping costs is Child Survival Aid Ghana’s greatest challenge. It costs an average of $35 to ship one large box of books from USA to Ghana. We have hundreds of schools that need books for their library.

Would you be willing to sponsor the cost of shipping at least one box of books—or more—coming to children in need of literacy resources and inspiration?

One box = $35. Or perhaps you would like to adopt a box of books every month by setting up a recurring contribution! Your gift may be made by clicking here. We will appreciate any amount you can spare to help us deliver books to children—children who need to learn how to read and read well to have a chance at a bright future.

But we can’t possibly do this without you. Your tiniest support can go a long way to making their big dreams come true.
