Nigeria: Books sent to Edo State


In February 2011, BAFA shipped a container load of books and other educational resources to Edo State. The school until then had no library. The school authorities were so pleased with the volume of books received from BAFA that they decided to expand the size of their new library building so that other schools in the community could use it.
