Build on Books - Changing Lives

Why we need your help

Build on Books has been proudly changing lives in Sierra Leone since 2008. For eleven years, we worked hard to turn around whole communities who were suffering because of a lack of clean water, sanitation, schooling or food security. We have also been the first on the ground during several humanitarian disasters such as Ebola, floods and mudslides and saved many lives.
We achieve so much by having the excellent Build on Books SL committee on the ground made.  BOB SL is made-up of headteachers and community leaders. They help make things happen quickly by engaging and mobilizing local communities who need help. This ensures that our support gets exactly to were it is needed most.
We think it is essential that all your generous donations go to doing good, so we do not pay salaries, and we keep admin costs down to the barest minimum.  
Your donations have been used to give communities a future by providing water, sanitation, classrooms, teacher training, libraries, books, pens, science equipment, clothing, food, humanitarian aid, farming, goats, rice drying floors, school furniture and whatever else has been needed to help children in Sierra Leone to survive and reach their full potential.
Please help us continue to do more and help more people by making a one-off donation or by registering for monthly giving.
Please do get in touch if you would like to know more at lori@buildonbooks.com
With huge appreciation

Build on Books has worked proudly to change lives in Sierra Leone since 2008.

For eleven years, Build on Books has worked hard to turn around whole communities in Sierra Leone which is still one of the world's poorest countries. Many are suffering because of a lack of clean water, sanitation, schooling or food security with no one else to help them. Build on Books has often been one of the first on the ground during several humanitarian disasters such as Ebola, floods and mudslides to hit Sierra Leone. Our quick response has saved many lives.
We have achieved so much by having the excellent Build on Books SL committee working at the grassroots of communities. BOB SL is made-up of headteachers and community leaders who can help make things happen quickly by engaging and mobilizing local communities. This ensures that our support gets exactly to where it is needed most.
We think it is essential that all your generous donations go to doing good, so we do not pay salaries, and we keep admin costs down to the barest minimum. 
 
For over a decade your kind donations have been used to give communities a future by providing water, sanitation, classrooms, teacher training, libraries, books, pens, science equipment, clothing, food, humanitarian aid, farming, goats, rice drying floors, school furniture and whatever else has been needed to help children in Sierra Leone to survive and reach their fullest potential.
Please help us continue to do more for vulnerable people by making a one-off donation now or by registering for monthly giving.

We wanted to do a toilet twinning and thought that Build on Books would be the perfect place to send our money, for all the access you provide to toilets and clean water (plus the food aid, school aid, book aid, emergency virus aid and more).
