In line with the NEPAD Education Initiative, NEPAD Rivers State has begun implementation of partnership with relevant organizations to donate about 1,000,000 (one million) Science, Maths, English and other textbooks to primary, secondary and post-secondary schools and libraries all over the State.

The One Million Books for Rivers State project was conceived in an effort to enhance Children's access to books and improve their academic performance and study habits, further buttressing President Goodluck Jonathan's "Bring Back the Book" Initiative. The project also includes donation of notebooks, school bags and other supplies to schools across the State.

NEPAD Rivers State flagged off the One Million Books for Rivers State project, on Thursday the 25th of April, 2013. The flag-off featured presentations of free textbooks, notebooks and backpacks to twelve (12) schools in attendance, spread across the 3 senatorial districts of the State.

After the flag-off, the State office commenced the distribution of the books and other materials to schools and libraries in Rivers State. NEPAD Rivers State has donated books to tertiary institutions, secondary schools and libraries in Rivers State.
