Lubuto Library Project, Inc.
September 29, 2011

Jane Kinney Meyers is doing amazing work on behalf of orphaned and vulnerable children in Zambia. What appears to have started as a community service effort of reading to street children while she was living and working in Zambia, it is now an impressive non-profit organization working at great speed. She has the successful combination of library science and development skills coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Jane's passion was the first wave I encountered but what really had an impact on me was seeing the effect on the children in Zambia as documented by Lubuto's videos. After seeing the videos I was so impressed by the opportunity Lubuto had created for these kids. I have worked with students for years as a middle school teacher in Washington, DC and I cannot help but see the experience through their eyes. The video made me realize how powerful it has been for them. Jane and the Lubuto Library Project have created a very rich experience for the out-of-school, vulnerable children of Zambia that respects them as learners and envelops them as part of humanity.
