The Accra Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International raises money for Books for Africa to ship 22,000 textbooks to children in need and stock libraries with outdated books in Accra, Ghana. Currently, books in some of the libraries in Accra and surrounding towns have copyright dates in the 1960s and ’70s. Additionally, the government has built 50 new schools, and these books will be the used by the students of these schools. The Accra Committee is working directly with the Mayor of Accra and the Ministry of Education.
