The Hellenic Mangement Centre / Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Greek Branch has the honor to participate in the organization of an important charity venture with the topic “The Day Star Book Drop Project”, that will take place on Thursday 21st of June from 20:30 hrs onwards at Polychoros Simeion, Piraeus (37 Gravias str., Piraeus, 185 45).
The purpose of this event is to liberate unloved books to help the education of shipping professionals in the developing world. This was an idea of one of our members and lecturers, Mr Simon Ward, who traveled in Mombasa earlier this year to teach young shipping professionals and realized that the resources that were most lacking were books. He decided to ask his friends in shipping for unwanted or surplus books so that he could send them to where they are wanted and needed. This event is to collect these books and reward those in the shipping community, some of whom have already donated generously to support this project.
All ICS Members, students and friends are welcome, with the condition that everyone must bring a book as a donation to gain entrance! The book should be in English and business shipping, economics or legal related. Atlases are especially welcome. There have already been shipped over 100 books to Mombasa from donations received by companies and individuals. This is for the benefit of all shipping industry: better educated professionals in all parts of the world.
If you want to attend the event please send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
……………..don’t forget to bring a book!
We are looking forward to seeing you all there on the 21st of June.
