Sadik Antwi-Boampong: Nsuta Community Library Project

Sadik Antwi-Boampong ’09 participated in the MIT Public Service Fellowship program. Sadik established the Nsutaman Community Library, the only library in the town of Nsuta, Ghana. Sadik convinced Books for Africa to donate 7,000 books and two computers to the library. Next, he negotiated with a member of Parliament to donate and renovate a building to house the library. Sadik subsequently arranged for students at the nearby university to cover library shifts and build shelves. Sadik was anointed with the honorary title of Development Chief responsible for Student Affairs in January 2008 at the official opening of the library.
