Child2Child Book Foundation interview with Ms. Stefania Okereke on BBC Africa's What's New

 

Child2Child Book Foundation

Child2Child Book Foundation (“C2C”) is a non-profit organization registered in the US and Nigeria, donating books to students in Africa. We are Ghanaian and Nigerian teenage friends who grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and want to share our love of reading with other children.

Growing up, we loved to read but did not have easy access to a diverse selection of books. C2C wants to share the gift of reading with underprivileged children, by providing access to good quality, diverse books.

Summer 2021 we completed a successful book drive in Nigeria.  We shipped 44,000 books and shared them with students, schools, libraries and reading hubs.  Check out our interviews with TRACE TV and Arise TV.

Summer 2022, we completed a successful book drive to Ghana.  We shipped 20,000 books and distributed them to 4 regions within the country. 

Summer 2023, we plan to target a French speaking country.

Thanks to all our donors for making our and other children's dreams come true!

The Solution

Create access to books through multiple resources.


Raise money to ship containers of books to communities, schools, orphanages and libraries.


Raise awareness to the fact that people in underprivileged communities lack access to quality books and education.
