One Book for One Ethiopian believes that every child should have affordable and easy access to all types of books, regardless of income, age or region. Education is the pathway to success for individuals as well as communities. Reading is essential to developing minds and it is a leading contributor to improved communication and language. It is a basic necessity that all children should have access too.
OBOE plans to distribute books to various Ethiopian schools who can in turn distribute the books to schools in rural areas. By either accumulating books through book drives and book donations or raising money through fundraisers and donations in order to buy books, OBOE plans to make books accessible for every Ethiopian child and eventually, every African child.
