University of Benin has become a partner of Ihezie in distributing books to Anumbra State.
Professor F Orunmwense, VC of The University of Benin, Nigeria, receives the donation of 60,000 educational and textbooks donated and shipped from the United Kingdom by Ihezie Foundation.
All of the books were donated to The University of Benin as educational aid for the students, teaching staff of the University of Benin and to the surrounding primary and secondary schools.
Below is some photos from 'distribution day', where we donated over half a million books to schools through our partnership with the University, feeding into primary and secondary schools in their region as well as filling the University's own library shelves. The programme has since been lauded by the University as stimulating reading programmes across the region and creating a weekly reading slot in children's curriculums across the region.
