On Behalf of 10-year-old Stacey Fru, we are writing to solicit African books and/or money to acquire books that her Foundation aims to donate books to underprivileged children and institutions. Through her book launches and public speaking engagements, Stacey was struck by how little African children from under privileged backgrounds read. For many of them, the only books they have access to are their school textbooks. An African Book A Child campaign is aimed at encouraging African children, especially, to read books written by African Authors. Stacey believes that these children will be more interested in reading stories with characters that look like them and storylines that reflect their daily lives. In many instances, Stacey has lamented her lack of insight into local writers. As she sets to enjoy African books, she would like to share her bliss with others.
No contribution is too small. As you contemplate to send your donation, we encourage you to support with any books; used and new.
The Stacey Fru Foundation (SFF)
Stacey Fru Foundation came into existence in 2015 when Stacey published her first. The foundation is the banner under which Stacey would like to initiate and support projects to inspire and empower children and adult through her books and motivational talks. Stacey’s vision was that for every two books sold, she donated a book to child. Stacey is a kind and loving girl, together with her siblings, she started by handing over outgrown clothing items in orphanages and to individuals. Stacey has since donated items like books and computers. She remains motivated to continue with her charity work. Hence the new concept of African Books a Child. Her parents thought that Stacey could help a lot more and motivate many more people and so are intensifying this charity work through her foundation.
‘Safety and Security Campaign for Children by a Child’
‘Children Television South Africa (CTVSA)’
‘Reading for all, Writing for Passion Initiative,’ etc. These projects aim to solicit support from donors. All the trustees work on a voluntary basis.
Vision: To grow minds as we grow up. Creating a growing South Africa for all.
Value: Impacting the best.
