New Shipment On The Way To Schools In Ghana!

An anonymous donor has contributed 140 boxes of prime teaching materials to schools that I.S.A.B.T. works with in Ghana!

Materials include History, Math, and Science books, dictionaries, hundreds of leveled reading books, teaching aids, reference books, math and science tools, microscopes, scissors, pencils... the list goes on. For a full inventory of materials please click here.

We have worked closely with the donor school teachers and volunteers to sort and divide these valuable materials for maximum impact. The shipment has been timed to arrive and coincide with the deployment of Pagus Africa volunteers working with the schools in Ghana this summer.

Special thanks to the I.S.A.B.T. donors as well as to Ellen Berenholz and Pagus Africa  for their help with coordinating this project. Stay tuned for more on this story...
