gianpierroI would like to wholeheartedly recommend this project as I believe education to be the most powerful tool in helping people and nations to raise up from poverty and difficulties.

There is never just a time for learning as learning is a lifetime opportunity being myself an example of that having finished my MBA at 50!

These books will bless so many kids and future generations to come and I am very happy to support this worthy cause and hope you do the same.
