We at Idakeda would like to thank the Ministry of National Diversity and Social Integration for graciously assisting with the printing of the book to ensure that all schools and university libraries receive a copy, and for their support of our Culture in Education projects.
We also wish to thank the book store owners for partnering with us to make these important publications available to the wider public.
