Travelling some 6,000 miles, our largest book shipment to date recently arrived safely in Gondar, Ethiopia. The 20-foot-long container set sail five months earlier after a busy period of book collections, sorting and packing with the very generous support of our UK schools.
On arrival in Ethiopia an energetic team of students helped unload and organise the 25,000 books and 12 computers, ready for distribution.
This book shipment was able to support some 15 primary and secondary schools in the region, whose libraries have now been significantly enhanced! A massive thank you to everyone who helped.
