A Book Drive for the Cause

 

50 Books and $50 – A Book Drive for the Cause

August 1 – September 30

MISSION:  Read Across the Caribbean Foundation (RACF) continues the awareness campaign created by Read Across Jamaica Foundation to improve the lives of children nationally & internationally.  Our Literacy Project's aim is to introduce creative and interactive methods of reading that encourage children to enjoy literature by increasing access to books and school supplies.

September is special because it kicks of the new academic year, allows us to recognize International Literacy Day (Sept. 8), kick-off a month long Book & School Supply Drive and continue a commitment to communities with Caribbean heritage. This Book Drive is just one of the activities Read Across the Jamaica has done for eight (8) consecutive years to help increase access to resources to inspire the youth to read.
