In a discreet and solemn ceremony, HITN reaffirmed its dedication to global literacy efforts by contributing electronic devices to the Bisila Bokoko African Literacy Project (BBALP).
The generous gesture from HITN, which included several Google Android 11 – 10.1″ tablets, aims to bolster BBALP’s mission of advancing literacy throughout the African continent.
Headquartered in New York and boasting subsidiaries in Ghana, France, and Spain, the BBALP is a distinguished international organization with a goal: the promotion of literacy within African communities. This ambitious mission unfolds through the establishment of modern, well-equipped, and sustainable libraries, serving as hubs for the dissemination of knowledge and education across Africa.
Angel Audiffred, VP of Government and Community Affairs at HITN, underscores the profound alignment between the organization’s values and the goals of BBALP. Audiffred expressed, “This donation resonates with our core mission of educating and entertaining, as BBALP embodies the same commitment to educational enrichment that we aim to bring to underserved communities.”
At the heart of BBALP’s endeavors lies a transformative initiative: the revitalization of community-donated structures into vibrant reading and study spaces, fortified by solar energy systems wherever feasible. This strategic approach ensures that these sanctuaries of knowledge remain unaffected by the intermittent specter of electricity shortages, granting individuals the freedom to engage with literature and learning.
BBALP’s footprint spans across a diverse range of African nations, including: Ghana, Equatorial Guinea, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, and Senegal.
Reflecting on their remarkable journey, BBALP proudly notes that their inaugural library was established in Kokofu, Ghana, in the year 2010. This early achievement serves as a testament to the organization’s enduring dedication to illuminating minds and nurturing a culture of literacy across the African continent.
HITN’s donation to the Bisila Bokoko African Literacy Project serves as a powerful symbol of corporate commitment to global education and underscores the profound impact that collaborative efforts can have in uplifting communities through the power of knowledge.
