World Book Day : A Cause for Celebration

Today is World Book Day - traditionally a day to celebrate literature and the anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. We at Children's Hope International have reason to celebrate.

Children at over 50 schools throughout Ethiopia will be receiving much needed textbooks, shipped by cargo this month from DC. Book provider World Bank Family Network is able to make learning within reach for these Ethiopian children for the first time with the aid of Children's Hope. When the books arrive in port city Djibouti, Children's Hope will have the glad task of distributing these books to disadvantaged children who previously had limited or no access to the bound pages - which may open their minds and their imaginations.

Have you read a humanitarian-themed book recently that you feel others should know about? Leave a comment and help celebrate the blessing of literature with us today.
