Intouch Gambia has just received a shipment of 8,000 brand new books from Book Aid International! In a feat of cross-country collaboration, non-profit organisation Riders for Health transported the shipment to Intouch Gambia coordinator Michael Mendy who is now able to distribute the books – alongside solar lamps – thanks to his new pickup truck.
The books for children include picture books, phonics books, young adult fiction and non-fictional education such as English as a Second Language texts. The diversity of age-appropriate books provided for young readers ensure that the children have the books they need for every stage of learning.
As well as the acquisition of a new vehicle, Intouch Gambia is currently in the process of recruiting two additional field workers to assist with operations as the organisation grows and continues to help more families and communities in the Central River Region of The Gambia!
