GBA Engages with Indiana University Students at Roundtable Event

The event took place at Foster Quad at IU GBA recently had the opportunity to do one of its favorite things: interact with the Bloomington community!

On November 3rd, Bloomington-based nonprofit Books and Beyond hosted a Roundtable on Service and Non-Profits in Sub-Saharan Africa. GBA, along with Books and Beyond (Rwanda), Building Tomorrow at IU (Uganda) and Play 360 (Tanzania, Kenya), met with students and other members of the IU community and presented about their missions and work.

Panelists discuss their work in Sub-Saharan Africa


GBA Executive Director Dena Hawes spoke of GBA’s experiences in DR Congo and recent initiatives there. Dena and the Giving Back to Africa Student Association (GBASA) were also on hand to answer questions, network, and sell a variety of African fabrics, curios, and handmade cards.

GBA is thrilled to be a part of its communities in both Bloomington and DR Congo and thanks Books and Beyond for hosting the event.
