A new BFA/Rotary partnership program will be introduced at the convention.  This program partners African Rotary clubs desiring books  with Rotary clubs worldwide who are willing to help.  These partnerships will support reading programs, promote literacy, and make new connections between rotarians across the globe.   Books for Africa is excited to partner with Rotary clubs to help reach the goal of 3 million BFA books sent to Africa by Rotary.
