Our heritage is a special one. We are an organization of passionate members who have chosen to dedicate their time, love, and money to support the children and teachers of impoverished areas of the world.
When Books are the Beginning began in 2009, we knew there was a lack of books and proper library resources in parts of the world and we knew we could fix that problem. We made it our mission to collect and send books to those children in need. We had no idea this mission would come so far in so little time. Since our beginning we have donated close to 100,000 books and have even began building libraries and donating education supplies and training to teachers and children in schools across the world.
Our work has a magnificent impact on the schools and communities we serve. From schools across the United States to schools in Uganda and Kenya, Books are the Beginning is molding the minds of young students and teachers each day. Books truly are the beginning of education and we plan to continue our work until no child is left without a book in hand and and education available.
