Grandeur Touch, LLC announces partnership. Dr. Peter Piot, co-discoverer of the Ebola virus, describes it as a disease of poverty, as outbreaks generally occur in high-poverty areas lacking the resources to cope with Ebolas virulent nature.

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2014

At this moment, Ebola is causing horrific, widespread fatalities on the continent of Africa. To help eliminate the root cause of the virus and other problems Africans face today, author Idowu Koyenikan recently teamed up with the nonprofit organization Books For Africa to provide copies of his new book, Wealth for All Africans: How Every African Can Live the Life of Their Dreams, to those who could not afford it otherwise.

This book equips Africans with the tools they need to make the leap to financial independence. Koyenikan, who for years has worked with some of the wealthiest people in the world on various issues concerning the management and protection of their wealth, says, Books have the power to change lives. There are a lot of Africans out there to whom nobody ever gave a roadmap on how to pursue the success they desire. This book was written to change that. Everyone deserves a chance.

Before Ebola, there was poverty, a persistent underlying cause of societal problems. Even the most developed countries in the world are not immune to poverty, but the problem is especially great in Africa. Those who want to help have always sent aid to Africa in the form of meals, clothing, bed nets, and vaccines. While these items are all necessary for survival, they fall short as long-term solutions. A meal may help people through the day, but once the meal is consumed, the people are right back where they started.

Like most people in the world, Africans wish to be independent, a tough thing to achieve without the know-how or the tools to better their situation. The old adage rings true: Give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. All Africans need long-term solutions, as provided in Wealth for All Africans.

Individuals, as well as for-profit and nonprofit organizations of all sizes, are being called upon to help put this book into the hands of Africans so they can develop themselves to the point of self-sufficiency. Provisions have been made whereby books can be purchased and shipped directly to Books For Africa, from where they will be sent all over Africa to those in need. Everyones help is needed to make this happen.

Heres how it works:
1.    Go online to http://www.amazon.com and purchase a copy (or copies) of the book Wealth for All Africans: How Every African Can Live the Life of Their Dreams by Idowu Koyenikan.
2.    Have the book shipped directly from Amazon to the nonprofit organization Books For Africa using the delivery address below:

BFA Warehouse
2971 Olympic Industrial Drive SE
Suite B
Atlanta, GA 30339

3.    Once received, the book is shipped to Africans all over Africa.
4.    Email the order confirmation to bfa(at)booksforafrica(dot)org for a tax receipt.

All donors can either choose to be recognized on the authors website or remain anonymous. The book price and shipping costs are potentially tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers. Speak with a tax professional for guidance. A portion of the royalties for books sent to Africa through this program will be donated to charity.
