“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. (Nelson Mandela)
Articoli Liberi is a multilingual project. We are a nonprofit organization based in the south of France, born to create and distribute free books to children in poor areas. In fact, we think that young people, in any Country, should have free access to Education and Culture.
We are a group of friends, all different from each other, but united by a big passion: reading. A book keeps in its pages the ideas of the person who wrote it, but also those of the person who reads it and will speak about it. In order to exchange our ideas, we started exchanging books.
Our mission is to distribute books to schools and young people all over the world. We print and ship free of charge, and we use the proceeds from the online sales to print extra copies. Our purpose is to join as many people as we can and pass down the importance of reading to the new generation. We would like to involve other publishing houses and create a circuit of donations in order to save those copies that are pulped every year.
Donating books is probably the most visionary but also the most approachable way to change the world. By reading literature, we all can be better people. Smaller. Let’s say, children again!
We also publish our own collection. We aim to promote enriching stories with an intelligent, critical approach to the problems of modern societies. In a few words: nice books.
