Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.

Educating Girls: The International Day of Education 2022

On the International Day of Education 2022, we would like to draw attention to the importance of girls’ education. When girls are provided with the access to education they deserve, the world benefits- poverty drops, opportunities arise and communities strengthen.

According to Unicef, 129 million girls are out of education globally. Poverty is the largest barrier to education. Families in rural areas of Kenya, where secondary school enrolment is fewer than the already low 53% national average, often want the best for their children but lack the financial means to support their education.
