Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn charity supports world book day Blackburn charity supports world book day

BLACKBURN based Tauheedul Charity has worked with Book Aid International to inspire and empower young readers in the developing world.

Tauheedul Charity launched a campaign on World Book Day 2014, and working in partnership with schools in the Tauheedul network, the charity raised £13,500 for the ‘School Library in a Box’ scheme.

The project provides portable libraries containing books in Swahili and English to schools in Africa that do not have a building that can house a library.

Chief Executive of Tauheedul Charity, Hamid Patel said: “At Tauheedul, we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of children through education. Our partnership with Book Aid International is underpinned by a vision of more children in Africa learning to read and having all the opportunities that this brings. The Zanzibar School Library in a Box programme is an example of how our partnership is enhancing the lives of thousands of children and young people.

Hats off to you. Well done to them. That's a heck of a lot of money. This bunch seem to do a lot of charity work from what I can gather. I always thought they were educationalists.

The Tauheedul Charity (TC) is a global education charity informed by progressive Islamic values. Such a pity that we need biased religious charities to supply what our governments throughout the world are employed to do!
