We believe that knowledge is essential to evolution and that the best gift we can give to a child is their education. For this reason, from today until April 30th, we will be accepting books, educational games and textbooks, new or used, as long as they are in good condition, to support the Atena Foundation.
This is a project that aims to protect and help children, young people and women in their school and professional path, and its mission is to emancipate girls by providing access to quality education. At the moment, the foundation is building a school in Guinea-Bissau and needs resources to guarantee education for girls and women in precarious conditions.
Grupo Presença, LeYa, Pato Lógico, Livros Horizonte, Plátano Editora, Bruaá, Planeta de Livros, Gradiva, Infinito Particular and other Portuguese publishers, who preferred to remain anonymous, have already joined our challenge, and we invite you to join us in this initiative as well. Together, we will promote Gender Equality and Education for these children, who currently live in precarious situations – we can really make the difference!
Until April 30th, we will be collecting the books that you want to donate, and during the month of May, they will be sent to the Foundation. The books and games can be delivered directly to our office, in Braga, or sent by mail to the same address:
Rua de São Domingos, 182
We will make sure that they reach those who need them most!
Thank you, in advance, for your support and generosity!
