Well my idea is pretty simple. A lot of us have books we used at various levels of our education in the Nigerian education system. In the end of every phase we,
1. Pass it down to your sibling
2. Put it away in the family library (the store)
3. Get rid of it (Burn or Trash it)
This programme is not for those in the first category, its for the rest where these books are not given to someone who needs it.
What this program will do is to collate books in the community especially from children of the rich who are moving to new classes/grades or done using a particular book(s), then giving same to people from poor homes who need these books and whose the familys\’ priority is food on the table (not some damn books). Books gotten through this medium can also be donated to the library of schools who cannot afford to buy the same.
This is programme can be used to limit the excuses that the parents give when asked \”Why is your child not in school?\”
We\’ll in a way reduce carbon emission from books burning, reduce the amount of wastes per day of some families, educate the population and most importantly help the needy.
