Give our children’s book… Ana from Angola goes to school …to kids, parents and teachers.
The book shows similarities and differences in schools around the world, teaches school-related Portuguese words, and helps build compassion by giving kids a way to take action.
Book cost is $10 and a donation can be made in any amount you choose. We will include a book plate.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and questions.
Together we can make a difference. Take action today and give a child the chance to go to school!
