Supporting the Educational Development of the Next Generation of Equatoguineans

Books for Bioko raises funds and provides much-needed school supplies for students in the Malabo area of Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea, where Marathon Oil’s facilities are located.

Since 2004, employees worldwide have raised almost $750,000 in cash to support the educational development of the next generation of Equatoguineans. The program now supports nine schools, with approximately 5,700 students in primary and secondary grades.

Marathon Oil helps with logistics, transportation and distribution of donated goods.

Annual activities also include a children’s art contest and the Awarding Excellence program. Awarding Excellence rewards students for their academic achievements at the end of their school year. The program builds an appreciation for education on Bioko Island through an annual celebration that involves students, parents, teachers, directors and ministry officials.
