Monte Carmelo

Jason and Edirleia visited a school in Monte Carmelo, ES for a neighborhood book delivery. During the event, 50 new books were donated to the children. The school was instructed that the books were for the students to bring home.

A quick survey shows that only 10% of the students said they had books at home.

“Reaching out to the children of Monte Carmelo really allowed my wife and I to see the life-changing impact firsthand that a Books for Brazil delivery has on a deeply personal level for those in great need in Brazil. The kids were overjoyed and instantly understood the value of this new treasure in their hands. For many of them, it was the very first book they had ever owned. Since Books for Brazil has now proved to them that the literary world is indeed in their grasp, we hope they’ll never ever let go.” – Jason
