Books Break Educational Borders
Our children and young people need us more than ever now, to guarantee a brighter world tomorrow.
By partnering with community organizations we make sure our programs serve those most in need.
An organization comprised of community members.
Books Breaking Borders started as a community action project that has enriched and changed lives. After working in schools, Kelsey saw a direct problem that needed to be solved as children who weren't on grade level were held back and/or placed in special education classes.
In the fall of 2013, Kelsey Nicole Nelson founded “Books Breaking Borders: Books to End Educational Bankruptcy,” because she wanted to end the pipeline of students not graduating and dropping out of school. She wanted to ensure that there would truly be no child left behind any day. The stripping of educational supplies from poorer communities, was something she could not idle with. Early on, she teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington (something that meant a lot to her as a BGCGW kid herself) to help give free donated reading supplies to the children. She collected all the supplies and hosted “book drives” on her college campus of the University of Maryland - College Park. She also helped organize spelling bees throughout the DMV.
