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 African American teenage leaders from Ghana and Nigeria who are taking active steps to improve literacy rates by providing access to reading books and textbooks in underprivileged communities in West Africa. Our passion is driven by our own lived experience in Lagos, Nigeria, where we loved to read but had to rely on family and friends to get access to a diverse range of leisure reading books from overseas. Our relocation to the United States has given us easier access to books so we are paying it forward.
We are currently fundraising $40,000 to ship a container of 25,000 French books to Guinea- Conakry for Summer 2024.
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 interview on 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 returned to Ghana and also visited orphanages in Togo, with 40,000 books!
Thanks to all our donors for your support and making our dreams come true!
