I know it’s been a while since my last post, but that doesn’t mean that things have ground to a halt.

Far from it.

In fact, we’ve joined forces with a good friend of mine in an effort to expand this whole idea into wider territory. The registration process is difficult, but it is important if we’re going to get the support of the production companies who have offered to help us. 

Where this project started off as an effort to get books into Africa, that is now just one part of it. We will also attempt to address literacy problems in this country as well. The advertising will still focus on the Africa side of things, however.

It may sound like we’re biting off more than we can chew, but we’re confident we can pull this off in an engaging, unique way.

Now that our goals have become larger, it is also necessary for us to register as a corporation first, so that we’re not personally liable in the unlikely event of any legal action along the way. We have high hopes for this, and need  to make sure we do it right the first time.

The charitable corporation will be called ‘Aduro,’ and we are currently wading through layers of red tape to get it off the ground. 

Once this is approved, we can finally begin raising funds.
