Africa Book Walk
In February a group will be joining Books For Africa (BFA) founder Tom Warth, who will lead a group from BFA and Hand In Health (HIH) to The Gambia to meet with elected officials along with prominent business and university members about ways to help end the book famine and support the United Nations Development Goals of educating women and children.
As part of the journey the BFA team will join others from HIH for the first ever African Book Walk. We will do two walks through the capital of The Gambia accompanied by children from many local schools. Then as a team we will walk the Trans-Gambia highway, from the Senegal border on the south to the Senegal border on the north, to raise awareness about the book famine and distribute 22,000 books to Universities, local schools, and co-ops. This collection of books also contains a “law and human rights library” generously donated by our partner Thomson-Reuters. Check out their website here for more information.
