UK Charity, Ihezie Foundation, donated 12,500 children’s books to 6 schools in Wandsworth, London on Tuesday 11th July 2017.
The selected schools were St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School, Chesterton Primary School, Christchurch CE Primary School, Sacred Heart Battersea Primary School, and Shaftesbury Park Primary School which each received over 2,000 books, with additional books being donated to the UK literacy charity, Beanstock.
Ihezie Foundation works to donate millions of books to schools, universities and libraries throughout the UK and Africa.
Books make a wonderful difference to children. Good teachers need good books to help them produce educated and well-informed students. In the last year, Ihezie Foundation has donated over a quarter of a million books to children in the UK, and Africa.
Jared Brading, Head Teacher of St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School said “This wonderful donation of books from Ihezie Foundation greatly helps our children continue their reading journey into even more magical lands and travel in the footsteps of much loved characters from Harry Potter to Horrid Henry and beyond!
Reading expands children’s understanding of the world and their literacy skills so we really appreciate Ihezie Foundation’s commitment in helping us and other local schools to achieve the best they can.”
Michael Bloedorn, Managing Director of Ihezie Foundation said “We have over half a million books in our warehouse already promised to children in the UK and Africa, now all we need to do is raise the money to deliver them and to support even more book donations like today. We urgently need more volunteers and sponsors to join us in this vital work.”
With your help we can make a big difference to the lives of millions of children!
