BookBuddies Africa

BookBuddies is a organisation with the ambitious objective of supporting a Culture of Reading in Africa. BookBuddies was born when a Zambian woman, Kina Robertshaw, saw first hand how reading transformed the life of her daughter.  Many children are excluded from fulfilling lives because their reading skills have been poorly developed. BookBuddies is getting going with some manageable ideas. In 2013 we aim to:

donate 10,000 books

supporting around 1000 children in 10 primary schools in Zambia 

run reading workshops

working with local primary school teachers to improve classroom skills and to foster partnerships between schools and parents

run a Reading Culture campaign

working with local organisations and media to rasie the profile of reading in Zambia
