Notes from BAI-HU Partnership Project Coordinator_MW

Today I received a piece of good news via email from my network of international colleagues: Max Cobin, Operations & Partnerships Officer who works at Book Aid International, London, he notified me that the donated books from BAI are already ready to move to their new home Sidama National Regional State, Ethiopia. The vessel is sailing on 04/11/2022 and the shipment ETH-BC-016 is expected to reach up on 05/12/2022 at Djibouti port.

The donated BAI books will be sorted upon delivery, stamped by BAI stamp, and will be distributed to pertinent colleges within HU and beyond  HU , as well as above all, particularly to pertinent primary, secondary school libraries  & public libraries in the Sidama National Regional State via the facilitation of BAI_HU Partnership Project Coordinator based on the BAI Donation Guidelines. Finally, an annual report about the accomplishment of the partnership project will be reported by the coordinator of the partnership project to Book Aid International.
