About Our Outreach Programs
Thinking Children Become Thinking Adults
Hoopoe publishes universal stories from the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan in bilingual editions, pairing the reader’s mother tongue with the Western language they will need for their future. These beautiful, illustrated books are ideal for both school-age children and ESL classes.
We would like to reach many more refugee camps and community centers, where families forced to leave their homeland are stranded, not only in the English-speaking world, but in Europe and the Middle East — these children are without storybooks in their own languages and from their own culture. Too many children are missing months, even years of school at a time when a love of reading and learning can mean so much for their lives. For more information visit: www.booksforrefugees.org.
You can do that anytime you make an online purchase from Amazon, just by using the AmazonSmile program. Simply make all of your Amazon purchases at smile.amazon.com (which is still Amazon, with the very same products and prices) instead of amazon.com – to do this, simply click this link to set your Amazon account up so that the Hoopoe Share Literacy Fund is the recipient charity (Hoopoe Books is an HSLF program). From then on, AmazonSmile will remember to automatically donate 0.5% of your eligible Amazon purchases to HSLF, at no extra cost to you!
