Many children and teens in Somalia do not have access to reading books. Somalia is a country that has been experiencing war for almost three decades. The lack of stability and government has made it difficult for children and teens to attend school or have access to books. According to the most recent census, the literacy rate in Somalia is only 37.8%.
Buugaag.org is a charitable organization that was started with the simple mission of collecting, shipping and distributing reading books to children and teens across Somalia. Buugaag means books in Somali. Books are luxuries that only a few children and teens can enjoy in Somalia and here at buugaag.org, we are trying to change that.
