We cannot break the cycle of illiteracy in Burundi without books in the native language of Kirundi. Few, if any books in Kirundi are available in Burundi. We can change this. You can help. Books for Kigutu is working to publish new books in Kirundi, French and English. We are partners with H.O.W. Journal and Pearson! Project Literacy. 100 books cost about $2500. Our first book will be published in early 2015.
Books for Kigutu is a grass roots organization located in Medford, Oregon, USA. Our goal is to bring books and educational materials to the village of Kigutu, Burundi, East Africa. We are partners with Village Health Works.
