Donors in the U.S. provided AUN’s Feed and Read Program with a ton of new books. The Nigerians in the Diaspora Organization of Washington, DC, collected and packed the books for shipment. The UPS Foundation arranged the door-to-door delivery.
The kids love the books. They get to work with them several times a week as part of the curriculum that teaches basic reading, writing and math skills. There are several hundred children enrolled this term, divided evenly between boys and girls.
