The World Bank Book Project packages and ships recycled books to supply hundreds of schools in several developing countries. It is currently undertaking a large shipment of books to Malawi.
This operation is entirely run by volunteers who collect, sort out and pack books according to the needs of each school which contacted this charity.
You can help them by donating books and magazines, old or new. The project is looking for elementary, intermediate, high school and university textbooks and library books, novels, fiction, National Geographic magazines and vocational material such as books on quilting,
knitting, woodworking etc . . .
Donations can be brought to the loading dock of the J building at 1775 G Street [in Washington, D.C.] all week long or at JB3-105 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Or you can contact Chantale Holzmann at 202-473-8960; Email:
Please distribute this notice to your friends and colleagues who may be able to supply the project with much needed books. Thanks very much!
