Speaking on the occasion Mr. Rory Dillon, Project and Finance Manager of Link Ethiopia said:

“When I first saw the book box in Gondar I knew that Link Ethiopia and Nisir should be working together. I think it’s natural that we support each other. I hope in the future we will help turn Gondar into a town that loves to read.”
