Help Our Children Read About Race

Recently it came to my attention that our primary schools are in great need of books which can help our children read about race. This sadly, in the most part is due to lack of funding.

Initially, together with the help of a teacher friend of mine, we collated an example bundle of books that ANY primary school library would be proud of having.

Over the past 2 months, that bundle of books has been fine-tuned and with the help of distributors, doubled in size!  

40 books for each school at a cost of £262.

I promised two primary schools that I would help them receive these books, one of which I would cover the cost of myself.  As of today we can help 63 schools. Let's keep going!


Enough is enough.
