From Strength to Strength

In February the committee of 2017/18 had the difficult job of electing the committee that would carry the mission of Vet Books forward in the best way possible. It was not an easy task; pouring your time, energy and soul into such a beautiful mission for two years will make you quite attached to it. You don’t want to entrust the mission to just anyone. Thus the committee set out to select the eight veterinary students they felt would uphold the legacy the best. After reading a mountain of motivational letters, they selected a group and held interviews with them to get to know the heart behind each candidate. Sitting late into the night after a lot of contemplation, they finally made their choice. A new committee was born.

Vet Books for Africa committee 2017/18, we salute you. You chose us to keep the fire of this cause burning bright, and we will not disappoint you. Thank you for the meaningful contribution you made to the education of Africa’s people and the conservation of Africa’s animals on your trip in December and January. We strive to make you proud in our own quest of making a tangible and lasting difference in Africa. We want to make Vet Books for Africa as meaningful as ever. As Isaac Newton said: “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” We as a new committee are both humbled and honored to be chosen to fill your shoes. From strength to strength, Vet Books for Africa will live on.
