FAVL, Champions of Quality Education in Africa?

I hate doing this... but, for the sake of the libraries... sigh. It's like Cal Worthington used to say, "I'll stand on my head to get a kid reading a book!"

Dear friends,

We need your support!

We are very excited to be entrants in the Hewlett Foundation and Ashoka's Changemakers Competition, Champions of Quality Education in Africa. This is a global competition to recognize innovative solutions to improve the state of education in Africa.

By being part of this competition, we have a great opportunity to get the word out about our work to leaders in the education field, investors, the media, potential partners, and other supporters.

The competition winners will be decided by online voting, so the more people we can inspire, the better!

Please help us rally support for our work:

  1. Visit our project entry
  2. Leave us feedback about our entry. Here's how:
    1. If you do not have a Changemakers account, please click here to register on the site. It only takes a couple of minutes.

    4. Visit my entry, read about what I do and leave me feedback!
    5. Update your profile and be part of a growing online community of support!
