The idea of exporting charity in Africa started about 4 years back during the RILM South East Asia Convention held in Chennai, India on 5th March 2017. During the convention, apart from other agenda’s, a short presentation was made by Mr. Rajiv Mehta, Trustee Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust on the vision to ensure that every child has at least one book to read- under the Project “Mission Million Books”.

Mission Million envisions to donate at least million books. Till date, RNCT has successfully been able to establish over 4000 libraries across India. RNCT has also developed its own customised software to keep a track of reading and borrowing habits of users, especially the underprivileged.

Meetings with PDG Nancy Barbee with the shared idea of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”- The world is one family developed into the Project of Exporting Books in Charity to Ghana, Africa.       

The books will soon reach Port Thema in about a month’s time. The books are shipped to Rotary Club of Sunyani Central, P.O. Box 206, Sunyani, Bono District, Ghana
