Supporting schools in Chelmsford with 6000 books

Donating books to schools is a good way to support teachers in educating children and improving life outcomes through improved literacy. The Ihezie Foundation recently completed a book donation drive in Chelmsford, where four schools received a total of 6,000 books.

The Founding Trustee of the Ihezie Foundation, Aloysius Ihezie said

‘We are honoured to help the schools in Chelmsford, along with other UK schools, through our book donations. Our mission is to support schools in improving literacy levels, as we know reading has the power to transform the lives of children. We hope the pupils of the four schools in Chelmsford enjoy the 6,000 books we donated and continue to learn and develop their passion for reading’
