Happy BBG friends!

Our donor appreciation and Books and Bricks Global launch dinner was a smashing success!

We raised just over three thousand dollars on July 25th! With some of the donations earmarked as startup funds for the launch we have been able to move forward on many of the much needed aspects of starting our new non-profit. Thank you again for your generosity!

Ground breaking!

Ground breaking for the Virginia library has officially begun. As you can see the students are very happy with the start of construction and have been very willing participants! Did you know that we ask the local community to first raise twenty percent of each library before we begin construction? When finished, this library will be open for use by the entire surrounding community. Thank you to our donors as well as the people of Masaani for making this possible. Education begins here!

Happy students! Excited for their new library.
