IIIT Donates Books to IPSA
On Monday, February 6th, IIIT shipped about 520 boxes of books to the International Peace College South Africa (IPSA) in Cape Town, South Africa.
The gift of books included IIIT publications, in addition to countless duplicate books from its two libraries, Al-Alwani and Al Faruqi Libraries.
IPSA is the first and only Islamic institution registered by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) in South Africa offering accredited programs, a BA and Higher Certificate in Islamic Studies.
In its effort to introduce the International Institute of Islamic Thought and its great wealth of publications, IIIT contributed a number of its books to approximately 12 graduate students of the Howard University School of Divinity. In addition, IIIT contributed tote bags, pens, mugs, IIIT's list of English publications and Distributors, and book lights.
IIIT contributed a number of its publications to the Fawakih library. Fawakih was established in 2008 to provide Arabic instruction for more direct access to the Qur'an and other Islamic texts.
