Textbooks for school children

£38 of £1,049 goal

Raised by 3 people in 11 days
There are thousands of school children in various African communities whose parents cannot afford to buy them textbooks. This is sad.

So, as I prepare to run the Marathon on 5 May this year, I want to raise funds to provide Mathematics, English and story books for school children in Ibadan, the city where I grew up. I will also donate 249 copies of my book, The Shift of a Lifetime, to secondary school libraries and selected students.

This is a mammoth task, but we can start from somewhere! One book at a time, one child at a time!

Join me in raising the necessary funds to realise this good work!

Yesterday, I read a post by a friend about children in Abuja who cannot continue school because of school fees of Two Thousand Naira (that's just £5!). It really broke my heart. I have, in the past, supported the work of this dear saint among Ghetto children in Nigeria's capital city and now want to include them in this campaign.

Thank you for your donations thus far. Thanks also to Temi who wants to donate some Mathematics textbooks. Yes, you can donate books too. We just have to work out the logistics of receiving them from you in good time.

Meanwhile, the running continues. I did about 11km today. Still got a long way to go!
