Munich English Book SaleAufrufe: 1853
Diese Kategorien nehmen wir an:
Das können wir besonders gut gebrauchen:
Englischsprachige Bücher, Hörbücher und DVDs.
The following items are also desperately needed by the community in Ilembula and can be brought along with book donations or given to volunteers at the Sale. They will then be added to the containers sent twice a year to Ilembula:
English medical, surgery, midwifery, nursing, anatomy or botany books, encyclopedias, National Geographic magazines; laptop computers (no matter how outdated, as long as they are in working order and are not password-protected), cutlery, kitchen aids and appliances, tools, musical instruments, mechanical typewriters; shoes (clean, but no winter boots please!) – please do not bring clothes as transportation costs to Africa are much too high to make it worthwhile and as we prefer to support the local textile industry.
Am Herrnholz 6
The Book Sale is only possible thanks to the thousands of books and DVDs donated and purchased so generously by the general public over the years. Please contact us to obtain further information about donation procedure (see Contact Information below).
Bitte Folgendes unbedingt beachten:
Die Bücher sollten in guten Zustand sein.
Das ist unser Betätigungsfeld:
Humanitäre Hilfe für Tansania
The Ilembula Project
The English Book Sale has been running for 9 years and the entire proceeds are used to provide practical assistance to families and orphans in Ilembula, Tanzania. The Ilembula project was established over 30 years ago, and has worked continuously since then to enhance the lives of the community of Ilembula, Tanzania through health, education and environmental initiatives. The proceeds of the English Book Sale help to fund these projects. The 2016 Autumn Sale earned 12,400 euros – a new record! This is quite an achievement considering that over 90% of the books cost 2 euros or less. The 2017 Spring Clearance Sale set a new record as well, selling over 4,000 books at 2-for-the-price-of-1 and raising 2,960 euros. These achievements would not have been possible without generous donations of books and DVDs by the general public (17,000 items were donated in 2016) and without the Sale’s dedicated team of currently 26 volunteers working tirelessly for hours sorting and pricing the thousands of donations.
