Literacy Advocacy events are held throughout the year including Literacy Competitions and Teacher Seminars for English Competency. Your support directly supports these events including textbooks and supplies for both Students and Teachers. In January 2019 we sponsored over 30 teachers from two remote villages attended a Teacher Seminar Intensive. Student scores on national exams have increased dramatically since we've been able to provide teacher training.

We Need Your Books!

Thomas Charities has an ambitious plan to implement the building of a substantial lending library with bookmobiles located in the vicinity of these public schools. Currently, there are no libraries in these areas and as you can see in the photos, the students learn without textbooks or workbooks. We collect books of ALL types and conditions including reference sets year-round. 

Please contact us at: for book donations and donations of shipping containers.
