Clemson University Collects More than 4,200 Books for a College in Kenya

A year ago, students and faculty at the College of Health, Education, and Human Development at Clemson University collected 675 books that were donated to the library at Narok University College in Kenya. Students, faculty, and other members of the Clemson University community, were asked to donate any book that was published after the year 2000.

This year, another book drive was launched and more than 4,200 volumes were collected. Fedex has agreed to ship the books in 225 containers to Nairobi at no cost to either university.

  1. Congratulations to the students and faculty at the College of Health, Education, and Human Development at Clemson University for collecting 675 books that were donated to the library at Narok University College in Kenya. This is an idea that could be replicated among other colleges, universities, public school districts, and public libraries to other places both locally and abroad where there is a need.

    Thanks also to FedExpress for their role in doing what they do best!
