July is an especially meaningful month for ZODML: July 16 marks the anniversary of the death of Zaccheus Onumba Dibiaezue, for whom our organisation is named, and it has become a tradition to mark the day in a special way. July 2012 saw the launch of zodml.org, and this year saw the creation of our BookCorner project, a special initiative aimed at getting books into secondary schools across Nigeria. We want to thank all of our members, fans, followers, and friends who have shown us so much support over the years, and we look forward to hitting another great milestone in July 2014! As always, we welcome feedback and questions sent to newsletters@zodml.org (and don’t forget to tell a friend to subscribe!).
