West Africa Libraries

Region: West Africa

Sponsor a Library! Promote Literacy!

In West Africa, many people believe that reading is important, particularly in their mother tongue. Yet learning to read requires a great investment of time and effort. New readers end up discouraged because books are unavailable to them. This is acutely felt in rural communities.

We will partner with fellow advocates of literacy to set up 50 community lending libraries. These libraries do not require buildings, but are simply a trunk of books entrusted to the village. Those villages who do well in managing their libraries will be assisted in setting up a sales outlet with the most popular books.
