Our Project


At Books for a Change, our mission is to expose young children in Developing Countries to literature as an entertaining pastime which will stick with them throughout their entire lives and allow for successful development, as well as a better future.


Here at Books for a Change, we believe that by spreading the love of reading through donations to libraries and giving books to various daycare's around Latin America, we can change the lives of thousands of children for the better. Our kind implementation and educational books allow the kids to embrace as much knowledge and work habits as possible, while still having fun and enjoying reading forever. Books for a Change: one book can change a life.


Books for a Change is a program dedicated to donating bookshelves to daycare's throughout Brazil and various developing countries in order to increase literacy and education. By allowing the children in these areas access to books, we are giving them a chance to get out
of poverty and into a new life.

We plan to send bookshelves consisting of at least 10 books per age group to daycare's around Brazil and Latin America. The shelves, which are made up of a simple, portable material, make it easy for the children to safely take books. The books that we send will be considered the most beneficial for the education of young children, allowing for a greater impact. Our hope is that if the love of reading is instilled within the kids at a very young age, it will follow them throughout their entire lives, allowing for success in school as well as a bright future.

The age groups that we currently cater to are 0-3 and 3-6. Each separate age group has an equal number of books, selected by us based on the educational content and context. As the children grow, they will have a different set of books that are meant for them, granting a greater interest in literature.

A Daycare we Gave to

With your help, we will be able to achieve our dream and send a batch of bookshelves to daycares all around Latin America. For only 4.00 dollars, you can donate a book that can greatly improve the life of a child! If you would like to donate an entire bookshelf for $142 you could spread the gift of reading to an entire daycare!

Give the love of reading to a child in need with Books for a Change!
