Equipping Libraries and Schools in Togo with reading books
EDULCOD Togo and AJA Togo two organizations collaborated to bring in Togo a container from Books For Africa full of twenty two thousand books (half French, half English) to equip libraries and schools in Togo to boost education by helping students mainly those in rural areas to have access to a reading resource.
The launching ceremony of the distribution of these books was held yesterday, March 3, 2020, at College Don Bosco de Kara. Political, administrative, religious, and traditional authorities, librarians, students, and friends enjoyed attending this successful and unique event. We were honored to see among us Col. BAKALI, the Prefect of Kozah prefecture who clearly described how this Books Project will impact the lives of students, all readers and how this is contributing to the development of our country Togo. The Prefect and all the beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to #BooksforAfrica, to #EDULCODTogo, #AJATogo for having initiated this project and wished to see more similar projects in the future. We will never thank enough #BFA team for their invaluable support. Lots of thanks to all of you who contributed to the success of this project. The books will be distributed in all the regions of Togo. There is still a need for books to serve other areas, resources to build new libraries, make shelves and we are open to any suggestion. We believe that if kids have access to books and read them, it will change their lives and they will perform well at school.
