Donate a Book for a School Library in Ethiopia!

We’re looking for NEW or AS-NEW children’s books in English, to donate to a school in Mohoni , Ethiopia . Can you help? The school needs books for preschoolers, teens, and all ages in between.

Hardcover books are preferred, if possible.

Mothering Mattters Switzerland supports the registered Swiss charity Ethiopian Enterprises, who are building a library for a school of 1,400 children in Mohoni. This will be the first library that the school has had.

Information about the school, photos, and more details can be found here.

In addition, the school is collecting colouring books and/or pictures for colouring in. The Mohoni schoolchildren really enjoy colouring, and the school can use some help keeping a supply of pictures at hand. Colouring books could even be partly used! Individual sheets of good colouring pictures printed from the Internet or from your own files are also great.

Please mail or hand-deliver the books and colouring books/colouring pages here:
