I was absolutely thrilled at the end of July 2018, when brothers Archie and Hugh Simm informed me that 30 Blantyre Project books were distributed to various schools in Africa.
Archie kindly bought 30 books, which not only benefited local Blantyre good causes here directly, but the books ended up also helping others on the other side of the world.
Via Eduction Scotia Trust for Africa, they were distributed to various school libraries throughout Malawi and of course, including Blantyre, Malawi. Archie told me, “It is my hope that through your efforts, the people of Blantyre Malawi will get an insight to the origin of the city’s name and of the historical culture in which we were raised. “
Thank you to Archie and Hugh for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
