HatchHope is one of the contributors and partners of Books For Africa. We collect used books and relay them to Books For Africa. The donated books are then shipped and distributed to specific schools on the African continent.
In an interesting change of events, HatchHope will, for the first time be sponsoring the shipment of books via Books for Africa to schools in Rusape, Zimbabwe. There is an on-going campaign to raise the funds necessary to realize this goal. Please click here for more information regarding the current fundraising campaign.
