Helping Hands Books For Kids project inspires kids in our communities to read, interpret their world and respond.
Helping Hands is an organisation creating opportunities, challenging inequalities and developing active citizens.
“I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a book.” – J.K. Rowling
Reading empowers kids. It encourages them to discover their own interests and develop the skills they need to pursue those interests. The earlier kids begin reading, the better it is.
“Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai
Helping Hands Books For Kids project works with partners to gift books to kids in need throughout Edinburgh. Every child deserves to be fully supported on their journey to literacy. In some of our communities this is not the case. We’re working to change that.
