STELLAA addresses Africa%u2019s hunger for education, knowledge and information that are plagued by the lack of funds and resources. STELLAA sends shipments of used books to Africa and builds libraries and education centers. Our libraries and resource centers will not only offer training and employment for those within the community, but also regionally specific and vital classes for those in the community who do not have the money to attend a school.
Nevertheless, STELLAA also has a strong focus on promoting environmental responsibility. Books can do so much more than become recycled paper as their contents is worth more than just the paper that they are printed on by using them in libraries
Literacy, environmental responsibility and global citizenship have one thing in common: STELLAA (Stella's Training, Education, Literacy Learning & Academic Assistance). STELLAA is a Canadian non-profit, collecting new and used books and school supplies to provide literacy and education in Africa, to help end poverty. On Sept. 26, 2010 you can help by donating books at WOTS Toronto.
Imagine 2 times the population of Canada being illiterate. That is the situation in Sub-Saharan Africa. Now, imagine doing something about it!
