Books for Schools – A Turkish Experience

Posted on: November 27, 2009

Plans are afoot to hopefully raise enough money for at least one box of books in time for the start of the school year 2010. These will be good quality Turkish books (fiction and non fiction) suitable for primary school children and will be to encourage reading for pleasure and not to fit in with any curriculum studies. They will be chosen with cultural, religious, moral and legal sensitivities in mind. I have already spoken with a supplier in Datca who is keen to help me and will give a good discount. Although it was Pebble’s vision to empower women and girls I don’t feel we can only give books that will appeal to girls and so these books will appeal to both sexes with an emphasis on the ones for girls. Each book will have a sticker inside with a little message about Pebble. A box of books will be to the value of about £300. I hope to order the books by August.

I am hoping to raise most of the money myself for at least one box. However all donations will be gratefully received. If you or anyone you know would like to sponsor a book for £5 or £10 your name if you wish can be written in a book and we can let you know the details and where it will go. If your company or group would like to sponsor a box full it will be £300 and I’m sure one of our clever printing bods here will magic up a special sticker with your name on to put in the books.

During the next few weeks I hope to do a promotional DVD that you could show to your group, coffee morning, organisation or schools too far away for me to get to. Let us know if you would like to borrow one.

I will happily talk to any group (any age) within travelling distance of Gloucester for a donation and can provide a few fun activities!!

I will provide a Turkish day in two schools within an hour of Gloucester for a minimum donation of £200 for the fund plus £20 towards petrol.

Please let us know if you can fund raise for this particular project. The end date for receiving money will be July 2010 and the books will be bought by August. Any visits you wish me to make will need to be before the end of June 2010.
