Books For Africa Launching African Union Partnership in January

Books for Africa, which has sent more than 40 million books to the continent including many from a warehouse in Atlanta, has landed a partnership with the African Union, the multilateral body bringing together 55 nations. 

The Minnesota-based organization will ship an inaugural container filled with 22,000 books to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in January to coincide with the AU’s annual summit. It will be followed by subsequent contributions each year, according to an AU news release.
