Teachers in Port Vila, Vanuatu dry books under the direct sun after Cyclone Pam ravaged the Pacific island nation.

Schools like Port Vila Central School needs replacements for the damaged books. The Central School’s headmaster Paul Hetyey says:

“There are a lot of book warehouses out there, you know, in the Western world books are going out of fashion, you can’t sell your second-hand books, you can’t get rid of them. Well, we need good books, good encyclopedias, reference books, all subjects, reading books from kindy (kindergarten) right u to year 13 young adult books.”

Contact Oxfam, Save the Children, Red Cross, or UNICEF.

Let’s help rebuild their libraries. Spread the word!
