My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lubuto Library Partners, Washington, DC, USA
Lubuto Libraries are connecting children, books and communities through a wide variety of activities supporting literacy and development. Since the opening of the Lubuto Library in Garden area of Lusaka children have been regular and consistent users of materials, participated in theater and art programs and taken to the one-laptop-per-child computers. I've watched the children teach themselves and each other. During their time in the library they are enjoying the learning and exchanges with each other.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
working with children from Lusaka.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide more staff to work daily with the children.
For several years, Lubuto has worked with Zambia's Ministry of Education to build local capacity to staff the libraries. Right now that process is coming to fruition, and we will be building Lubuto Libraries throughout the country in partnership with the Zambia Library Service. So the limitation that Mary observed when she visited at this early point in our development will disappear now that we are closer to achieving our plans with Government support.
