We are super excited to introduce to invite you to join our Youth Month Campaign: 100,000 books for 100,000 Smart Kids starting from June - Youth Month 2017!

About the campaign

We pledge to make a significant contribution to Youth Month 2017 as well as the UN International Decade of people of African Descend (2015-2024) and the African Union’s Agenda 2063, by writing and making sure that 100,000 books are delivered to 100,000 Smart Kids in SA 2017. We, therefore, invite you to be part of this game-changing campaign to empower our youth. So far the following books are available for delivery:

•   Africa for Smart Kids book 1 – Let's talk about Africa!

•   Africa for Smart kids book 2 –Where is Africa?

•   Africa for Smart kids book 3 – Are all Africans Black?

These books series is carefully written to unveil and enable our kids, families, schools, and communities to better know and, understand Africa, our people, culture, geography, as well as our common African legacy, identity, and heritage in a way that enables our readers to think and act like proud Africans. The campaign starts in June, which is Youth Month in SA and will run throughout the year!
