Dear Donor

My name is Patrick Essie. I am the president of the team at Genesis – Voluntary Enlightenment Program (G-VEP). We’re hosting our annual book donation – THE BOOK SMILE. This event not only helps raise funds for the purchase of books and textbooks for students and school libraries but will also raise awareness of the importance of education to the population of uneducated children in Nigeria.

We’re proud to announce that this year’s event will be held in August at 10 schools within Kano State, Nigeria.

Since the event’s inception, we have gotten over one hundred (100) textbooks, we plan on raising even more! So far we are expecting approximately two thousand (2000) textbooks and writing materials.

This event would not be possible without the support of contributors and local companies who provide valuable products and services so that we can support participants during the event.

I am writing to ask you to support us in THE BOOK SMILE (donation). Just a donation of $1 (₦400) can help reach a student with the required textbook. 

Your donation will go toward purchasing textbooks and other writing materials to aid studies and provide quality education to students in 10 public schools in Nigeria.

Africa is the second-largest continent in the world with the majority of this population earning less than a dollar per day. Many families cannot afford clothing, shelter, food, and education. Parents who are lucky enough to send their wards to school can only pay the fees, but cannot meet other vital demands of education such as providing their wards with textbooks and writing materials. Children in this condition are only privilege to attend a school which most often does not have a library. We can’t and shouldn’t wait for the government to put this in place. This is because so many lives depend on quality education. This is an emergency. We can together provide quality education for many students by reaching out to 10 schools each year. 

Thank you in advance for your contribution. You have no idea how much it means to me to have your support.
