It is always heartening for everyone at Books Abroad to see how much their efforts are appreciated so it is good to see comments like this:
On behalf of the children and teachers of Zimbabwe, college students, university students and parents who were impacted by this project, we wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the Books Abroad team of volunteers who risked their health during the COVID-19 to make sure that the children of Zimbabwe received these books. It is this concept of volunteering that we are also trying to promote in our country as we strongly feel we can move mountains with it as a nation. Our aim through our work is to make our own fellow citizens realize that work is not only defined in monetary terms. May your work, therefore, continue to be blessed.

This is from a report we received on our latest delivery to Zimbabwe. Books are very expensive in Zimbabwe and are beyond the reach of the majority of those in rural schools. The teaching of the English language is important in these schools and without the help of Books Abroad, some of these schools would not have the resources they need. A full copy of the report is available here.
