LIVED, in partnership with the University of Edinburgh School of Social and Political Science is inviting students and staff members to donate their academic books to refugees in Calais.
The ‘Jungle Library’, a library run by volunteers in Calais, has received demands from displaced individuals to provide specialized and/or academic books to assist them in furthering their higher education; an education which was interrupted as a consequence of war.
Academic books from any discipline are welcome, but especially those in the fields of:
* Politics and History of the countries concerned: South Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria
Dictionaries, such as French/English, French or English/native language of the people concerned are also welcome.
If you would like to donate your academic books, please bring them to one of the many drop-in points around the University:
1. Chrystal Macmillan Building, Ground Floor, George Square
2. College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, Little France Campus
3. Chaplaincy, George Square
For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for supporting the education of refugees in Calais.
