We are indebted to our sponsors and partners: WearGhana, Sasa Clothing, Norte Special Sobolo, MTN, Fali’s Fruit Bay, AJ’s Housekeeping Services, threesixty Gh, Citi FM, the various FM stations in and around Ho who interviewed us, the Ho Technical University SRC, Unicorn Car Rentals who provided a comfortable bus to take us to and from Ho, and Shekinah Glory Hotel, Sogakope, which provided free accommodation to the entire team of 12, including the chauffeur.

A special appreciation to the Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creatives Arts, Mamaga Abla Dzifa Gomashie, who continues to give us vim. She made time out of her busy schedule to attend the reading, stayed till the end, spoke to the students (interacted after the event as well) and even read a poem of hers!

To all of you who continue to spur us on from far and near, Akpe!

To the over 70 book enthusiasts who came to HTU SRC JCR to listen to us and ask those deep questions, to the students and staff of the schools that attended (including the Headmistress of Mawuko Girls who attended in person), you are the reason why we will plod on to get Ghana reading again.
