Archbishop Desmond Tutu was in Atlanta on Monday for a charity event to support an organization that supplies books and school supplies to children in Africa.

Tutu is the honorary chairman of the Africa’s Children’s Fund of Atlanta, an organization founded by Victor Mbaba, a Nigerian who lives in Atlanta. In 1992, Mbaba made a trip home to Nigeria and visited schools, where he saw many students without books. When he got back to the US, he set up the non-profit to collect worn and dated books from schools and send them to the country.

“The world is interconnected, so what you do in a little corner of the world has global significance,” said Tutu. “It is better to be educated than not, to have books than to fight.”
