Supporting education in Canada

Classrooms care: Reading is Giving

 

Since 2008, Scholastic Canada has supported First Nations communities by donating 30,000 books annually to Save the Children.

We partner with Indigenous communities and organizations to distribute these books, including North South Partnership for Children, Kenora Chiefs Advisory, and Fort Francis Tribal Health.  To date we have distributed over 90,000 books to over 15 Indigenous communities.

This collaboration has proven so successful that in 2010, one community renovated their library to accommodate the number of new books they received: much to the delight of children in the community.

"Save the Children has been an early and enthusiastic partner in Mamow Sha-way-gi-kay-win: North-South Partnership for Children, a coalition of NGOs in southern Ontario working with impoverished First Nations communities in the north. For three years they have collaborated with Scholastic Canada to distribute much-needed books to school libraries, which the children and teachers love. We look forward to many more such initiatives.” 

– Judy Finlay, Acting Executive Director
