CEO of Ghana Publishing Company Ltd visits Minnesota Branch of Books for Africa
On the 8th of October 2018, the C.E.O of Ghana Publishing Company Limited, Mr David Boateng Asante, responded to an invitation to visit the Minnesota Branch of Books for Africa. Books for Africa is the largest shipper of donated text and library books to the African continent; shipping over 41 million books to all 55 countries on the African continent since 1988.
The mission of the organization is simple: to collect, sort, ship, and distribute books to students of all ages in Africa. The goal is to end the book famine in Africa. In the fiscal year 2018 alone, Books for Africa shipped 2.3 million books, and 123 computers and e-readers containing 283,000 digital books, to 29 African countries. More than $2.2 million was raised last year to ship these books to the students of Africa. Our country Ghana has been one of the largest recipients of books from Books for Africa.
This visit was to re-establish the commitment that Books for Africa has with Ghana, and to further deepen the relationship
