Ship donated books to University of Jos, Nigeria

Project by Dung Jidong

Fund raising to transport books donated by Uni of East London to Uni of Jos Nigeria, following a fire outbreak that consumed their Library.

We did it!

On 16th Aug 2018 we successfully raised £10 with 1 supporter in 28 days

The aim of this project is to transport books donated by psychology staff at the University of East London (UEL) to the University of Jos Nigeria, following a fire outbreak in 2016 which consumed their library and departments in the Faculty of Social Science. See news details of the fire outbreak in the above video clip. 

Collated books at the UEL weighs approximately 250 kg. 

Expense breakdown:

(i) Shipping fee (@1kg = £1.85) 250kg = £462.5

(ii) Handling fee = £20 

(iii) Miscellaneous (e.g. local transport fare) = £117.5

Total cost = £600

In summary, the project target of £600 would be adequate for shipping the donated books from the School of Psychology at UEL, London UK to the Department of Psychology at the University of Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria.

Thank you for your support and donation in actualizing this project!
