Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing mankind, but what is the profession of project management doing about it? There are important exceptions but by and large the profession is fairly quiet on the subject.
APM donates books to Africa
Posted by APM on 20th Oct 2015
APM is contributing to raising the level of project management professionalism in Africa by donating a number of its publications to charity.
Books To Africa supports students and teachers across the continent by providing books, funding and training to educational projects.
The international non-governmental organisation believes ‘education is key to defeating poverty and transforming Africa's future.’
The charity – founded by Tonson, Chumang, Gideon and Precious Sango – has delivered nearly 60,000 books since it started in 2012.
“I would like to thank APM for donating the books and we hope other publishers will follow APM’s example,” said Precious Sango, director of education at Books To Africa.
“We are confident that this donation will make a significant contribution towards our target of shipping 100,000 books to Africa by December 2015.”
APM publishing manager James Simons said: ““I am absolutely delighted to put these books to good use.
“The role of APM is to publish materials that seek to promote the science, theory and practice of project, programme and portfolio management – and grow the professional project community.”
As well as books, the charity is also looking for sponsors to help fund shipments. For more information please visit the Books To Africa website.
