Bookpath: from Maastricht to Africa
Frederik, Tom, Ferdinand, Johanna, Franziskus and Ana, are the six faces behind Bookpath. The group of UM students founded the initiative to change the way we deal with used books and other valuable learning resources. Bookpath opts for a sustainable approach, where the knowledge in second-hand books is not thrown away, but passed on. The project collects used books and gives them a second chance by donating them to African schools and universities.
