MIT Book Drive Supports Ghana Library Project

Sadik Antwi-Boampong, a student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology & president of the student group EASE (Expediting Access to Standard Education) spent the last few months organizing a library in in Nsuta, a small town in Ghana . While in Nsuta during January, he was able to meet up with Pat Plonski, the Executive Director of Books for Africa, and arrange a shipment of 7,000 books for the library!  In his words, “It was a refreshing experience for me to meet and share my experiences with [the students of Nsuta]. Additionally, I was especially humbled that I received tremendous support from various people who shared my passion for educational empowerment through reading. It is my fervent prayer that the presence of the library will produce academically excellent students in Nsuta community.”

Sadik & EASE will be leading a Better World Books / Books for Africa book drive this spring at MIT. Here are some great pictures from his trip to Nsuta
