Please Help Us Send Over 20,000 Books to Rural Ghana in Honor of the Ghanaian Ambassador's Visit! Here's the message they sent me:

Dear Janet,

As someone who has lived among the people of Ghana, you may have witnessed the limited educational resources available to many Ghanaian students. At Books For Africa, we strive to increase literacy and improve educational access by providing high-quality text and library books to schools and universities, libraries, orphanages, and community centers throughout Africa.

Books For Africa is pleased to welcome His Excellency Daniel Ohene Agyekum, Ghana's Ambassador to the United States, as the keynote speaker at the annual BFA fundraising luncheon on Wednesday, April 28, 2010.

In honor of the Ambassador's visit, Books For Africa will be sending a 40-foot sea container of over 20,000 BFA books to Ghana. It costs $9,800 to send a container to Accra. Please help us deliver these books to the people of Ghana by making a donation to this project.

Books For Africa has had the opportunity to coordinate with Peace Corp Volunteers in Ghana in the past, and conducted a meeting with the Peace Corps Country Director in Ghana in January of 2010. We look forward to continuing to partner with Peace Corps Volunteers to provide educational resources and increase literacy levels across Ghana.
