Gifting Smiles Book Run

We did it!

Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope. It is a tool for daily life in modern society. It is a bulwark against poverty and a building block of development. For everyone, everywhere, literacy is along with education in general a basic human right. Literacy is finally the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential. Kofi Annan

We were able to collect 3230 book . We call it a big success because we were able to meet our target.
