RAW - appeal for book donations and volunteers

RAW promotes literacy development and creative writing in Nigeria.

The RAW Book Drive is a community project within Abuja.  Each week, volunteers will drive to a public space within a community in Abuja and spend some time reading short books, encouraging storytelling and playing games. Families from that community will be welcomed to come along and enjoy it all for free.

We need your support and donations:
  • Books for children, young people and adults as well as picture books. Books should be in good condition and in English.
  • Games/Toys: If you have some board games or toys that you no longer need, please donate them to RAW.
  • Rugs/cushions/bean bags: in reasonable condition.

This is part of RAW’s initiative to inspire a love of books, overcoming the difficulties in areas where there is little or no access to books and to encourage families to support their kids reading.

How to Donate
Books and games donations can dropped off at: No.18, Usuma Street, off Gana Street or collected from wherever you are. Please encourage friends and colleagues to get involved, collections can also be arranged from offices/compounds.


If you would like to donate your books and games, or register your interest in volunteering, please email: gillianparker3@yahoo.co.uk / call: +234 (0)7060514007. For more information on RAW, click here.
