Bound for Africa


Used and retired textbooks will be making their way from Prep to Africa soon, thanks to the efforts of Kathleen Jimenez, Prep’s diversity coordinator and learning specialist.

She learned of an organization, Books for Africa, that collects math, science and literature textbooks from around the country and ships them to Soweta.

From here,  they are distributed to children of mothers with HIV. 

“I am thrilled the books will be going to children who otherwise might go without,” said Jimenez.
