TY Buratai Literary Initiative to commission Book Placement Project in Abuja, Nasarawa schools

THE TY Buratai Literary Initiative (TYBLI) has announced the commissioning of its Book Placement Project in three schools across Abuja: Army Day Secondary School, Mambilla Barracks, Al-Hikmah International Academy in Mararaba, Nasarawa State and IDP Sharing Prosperity School in New Kuchingoro, Abuja. These activities will take place on July, 2nd, 4th & 9th respectively.

In a statement signed by theatre expert and Secretary, TY Buratai Literary Initiative, Om’Oba Jerry Adesewo, the Book Placement Project is a key programme of TYBLI, aimed at enhancing access to quality books and promoting literacy among young people in under-served communities. This initiative is part of TYBLI’s ongoing commitment to fostering a culture of reading and supporting educational development across Nigeria.

Each commissioning event will feature the installation of a mini-library stocked with a curated selection of books tailored to the needs and interests of the students. Additionally, the events will include a brief reading and interactive session with students, aimed at sparking their interest in reading and engaging them with the new resources. A book management talk will also be provided, offering valuable guidance to teachers and students on how to effectively utilise and maintain their new library resources.

TYBLI’s founder, Lt. Gen. T.Y. Buratai (Rtd), expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “We are thrilled to bring the Book Placement Project to these schools in Abuja. By providing access to quality books and fostering a love for reading, we are investing in the future of our young people and contributing to the educational development of our communities.”

Chairperson of the TY Buratai Literary Initiative, Dr. Lizi Ben-Iheanacho, will lead the team to the beneficiary schools for the installation and commissioning. TYBLI also acknowledges Adams Pages and Sprezzatura Publishing for donating the books for the first phase of the Book Placement Project, and calls for more donations from public-spirited individuals and organisations to help make books available for students across the country.

The TY Buratai Literary Initiative remains committed to expanding its reach and impact, with plans to bring the Book Placement Project to more schools across Nigeria in the coming year.
