Sean Denny is a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon. He recently worked with a team of other volunteers and many stateside supporters to fundraise to bring 22,000 books to students throughout the country.
“My school has done a wonderful job renovating a dilapidated classroom for the books,” Sean said. “The BFA project inspired the village to donate a huge amount of money to renovate this large room and put electricity in it. So community involvement has been great.” The container of books arrived in Douala on December 24, 2012, and though there is still work ahead to unpack, sort, and set up books, everyone is excited to start enjoying the new library!
