Freight industry brings illiteracy to book

August 1 - Global freight forwarder DHL and shipping line Safmarine have teamed up to boost literacy in Senegal. The two will create the first community library in Kolda, Senegal.

The new Kolda Community Library provides free access to global knowledge in the form of 350 French school books in a purpose-built 95 sq m facility that caters to all ages from six to 60 and is open six days a week.

Amadou Diallo, CEO, Africa and South Asia Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding, said: "Many students in this rural area have gone through the school system without having access to a single book."

DHL and Safmarine jointly funded the building and the stocking of the library which includes French books covering a range of interests from fiction/non-fiction, biographical novels, rapid reads, school books, reference books, encyclopedias and dictionaries
