BookSmiles now has an international reach! Here I am amid last week's snow flurry with Fred Twum-Acheampong, founder of the African Book Challenge based out of Voorhees. Every year, he contracts a shipping container to transport books, school supplies, computers, and other donations to his hometown in Kwabeng, Ghana.
We committed to supplying 2,000 + books that he will distribute among several schools in Kwabeng in July. Please see the pics of the library he helped open with the help of ABC's supporters. And check out his site. http://africanbookchallenge.org/ .
What's more, Jason Martin, a friend of mine and world traveler, has committed to flying out to Ghana this summer to help Fred distribute the books and other supplies. Drop off school supplies and working computers at Balsamos, his restaurant in Lindenwold!
