ABC is pleased to welcome a new publisher this month. Always Be Tolerant Organization (ABETO), Uganda was established and registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation in June 1996. The inspiration was in pursuit of the Commonwealth conference resolution to embrace tolerance: http://www.africanbookscollective.com/publishers/abeto
