Aggreko is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control solutions and has supported our work since 2006.
How does Aggreko support our work?
Aggreko is one of our most significant corporate supporters having donated over £330,000 to support our projects and helped us to send over 100,000 books.
Aggreko is currently supporting the development of two Open Doors Children’s Corners in libraries in Cameroon which will improve the prospects for learning and literacy for thousands of children. Each Children’s Corner will receive over 2,500 books donated from the UK and a grant for refurbishments to create an inspiring place for children and support to purchase locally published books. Two staff members at each library will attend training to work effectively with children.
In Tanzania, Aggreko is supporting Book Aid International’s book provision programme to increase access to reading materials in public libraries, schools and universities. Thanks to Aggreko another 10,000 books were made available for library users in Tanzania in 2015.
In 2015, Alex Oelofse and Munir Ladak from Aggreko’s Dar es Salaam depot in Tanzania were given the chance to see some of our work first-hand. They attended a training programme for 15 Tanzanian school librarians organised by Book Aid International and sponsored by Aggreko and visited Makumbusho Secondary School, one of five local secondary schools whose students have benefited from Aggreko’s support.
“Access to education and improving literacy is one of the major challenges affecting Africa today. Having the opportunity to represent Aggreko in front of people who are directly benefiting from our support was really enjoyable and uplifting.” Alex Oelofse, Aggreko Tanzania
We’d like to thank everyone at Aggreko for their generous support.
