    Hi there.....I understand you have posted this thread for some time; however I will give it a try in any case. If you still have the books with you, please let me know. I am one of the volunteers in Nabuur community (www.nabuur.com). Nabuur.com is an online volunteering platform that links Neighbours (online volunteers) with Villages (local communities) in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Connected through Nabuur.com, Neighbours and local communities learn about each other, share ideas and find solutions to local issues. I am engaged in one of the projects in Tsedang village, Tibet. One of our Nabuur volunteers, who is physically located in Tsedang village, has initiated an English-teaching class to help local children with basic English skills.

    If you still have the books, I don't mind arranging for collection and shipping of the books to my fellow volunteer who is currently located in Tsedang, Tibet running this humble school.
