Therefore, Read to Grow makes an agreement with each organization, which is about the transport and reception of the donated books and about setting up a good reading room. In addition, after the books have arrived, each project is required to return a letter from the receiving party, photographs and/or film material. Read to Grow, wants to know for sure that all donated books will be fully used by her recipients in developing countries.
