How can we help?
Djibouti, as I've declared in my list of statistics, has a very low literacy rate compared to other countries with only 68% of the country that can read. I believe that having their literacy rate this low heavily effects their quality of life.

1. Getting books. We would need books for all levels of reading so that the people there could not only learn the basics of reading but also gradually become very good at it.

However, it's not quite that easy. We would need someone, or something, to help us to achieve this goal to improve the literacy rate of Djibouti. In my research I turned up with a few organizations that could help solve some of our problems. They are:
