Check out the following letter from Pat Plonski, Executive Director of Books for Africa!
Hello everyone–It is my honor to inform you that Books For Africa has just signed a memorandum of understanding with Visions in Action to ship 25 40-foot seacontainers of textbooks to Liberia. This agreement will provide for the shipping of between 875,000 – 1,000,000 textbooks (550 tons) valued at approximately $4 million over the course of the next 12 months. Books For Africa history. This agreement with Visions In Action stems from a meeting I held in Monrovia with Visions in Action in January of this year where this concept was established. USAID is also playing a role in the financing of this project. I will be traveling to Liberia in October or November of this year as part of a Books For Africa / Better World Books delegation to meet with Visions In Action, and Liberian government officials, and other key players to formally initiate this project. Thank you everyone for your great support of Books For Africa. This is exciting news. The need for books of all types is very great in Liberia and this is an opportunity to help rebuild this country and give hope to the people there.
