AFRICAN LIBRARY PROJECT Overview
Target demographics: Africans, especially students, who have no access to books and information
Direct beneficiaries per year: 250,000 readers in new/improved libraries.
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: well, actually it takes more like 20-30 hours to do a book drive, but then you would have helped start a library in Africa!
Geographic areas served: Botswana, Ghana, Lesotho, Malawi, Swaziland, Sierra Leone and South Africa
Programs: small libraries in rural areas, librarian training and best practice Summits for our partners in Africa.
We have made over 800 partnerships in the U.S. with schools, companies, individuals, youth groups, Scouts, and families.
We have shipped over 1,270,000 books to Africa serving over 1.5 million readers.
