Support Our Troops Foundation, Nigeria

It is the believe of the Foundation that, a book in the hands of a child can lead to endless possibilities and create a reading culture in the children of the armed forces. It is in view of this that, the Foundation took a giant stride to donate 3000 books received from Books2Africa for distribution to libraries in military schools.
