Northfield Rotary Helps Ship Shoes, Books to Africa

The partners on a 16-month, international project met in person for the first time ever in Northfield earlier this month, to celebrate the arrival of books and shoes for school children in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Northfield Rotary Club hosted Albert Nyembwe, co-founder and director of Cilongo Foundation, and Patrick Plonski, executive director of Books For Africa, who told club members about the unusual collaboration.
