Ihezie Foundation

This is what 5,000 books look like. Packed and ready to send to libraries and schools in Africa, thanks to Ihezie Foundation (Facebook/Twitter). Had a lovely time visiting their warehouse in the UK and seeing how much work and preparation goes into what they do. 

All of the books above come from publishers and distributors, and would otherwise be pulped. The staff have to pick through hundreds of containers to separate the educational books from the rest. They only send high quality, recently published works, and unlike similar organisations they don't charge recipients a penny for shipping. I'm really looking forward to working with them more closely in the New Year.
