Shipping Books to Kenyan Orphanage

Over the summer, I am traveling to Kenya in order to partake in a mission trip to Crossroad Springs Institute. The school is an orphanage for children who lost their parents due to AIDS and other various diseases. Attached to the orphanage is a school that is open to children in the surrounding community.
When speaking to the coordinator, she noted that the school library is sparse. My plan is to expand the library by collecting books for all ages and ship them to the orphanage. Collecting the books has not been a problem, however, shipping boxes of books to Kenya comes at a hefty price. Please give these children the gift of literature. No child should go through life without exploring the imagination of a great author, or entering an unfamiliar world full of action, adventure, mystery, horror, and fantasy. Please help to give something to a child who has nothing.
