Help Us Build Two Libraries in Zambia

Can you imagine a world without books or libraries? Books stir up our imagination and open our eyes to the bigger world around us — much like travel does. That’s why we love this year’s Passports with Purpose fundraiser.

For the fourth year in a row, travel bloggers around the world will unite to raise funds for a charity. After last year’s success, $64,000 raised to help build housing in India, Passports with Purpose is aiming to raise $80,000 to build two libraries in Zambia.

This year we are working with Room to Read, a non-profit organization that works with local communities and governments in developing countries to promote literacy skills and support girls’ secondary education.
