Helping At-Risk Canadian and Afghan Children Read and Own their First New Books

The Institute for Cross-cultural Exchange (ICE)/Institut d’├ęchanges interculturels (IEI) is a Canadian charity that promotes family literacy and understanding between cultures. Our current priority is to donate high quality illustrated folk tales from Afghanistan, Central Asia and the Middle East to literacy programs helping children in need. With the help of its literacy partners, ICE has provided books and related literacy materials to thousands of disadvantaged children and their families in Canada and Afghanistan. Administered and staffed by volunteers, 95% of donated funds go toward the printing and the shipping of books to children who most need them. To learn more about ICE, and the books they offer, please visit www.iceeducation.org
