Lubuto Library Project, Inc.
September 30, 2011

I had the privilege of helping with the deployment of the One Laptop Per Child laptops for the Lubuto Library Project. I was drawn by Jane Meyers' enormous empathy, energy and passion to make a difference in a seemingly intractable situation: HIV Aids orphans abandoned to the streets of Zambia. I stayed as I saw how a simple vision – empowering children with a sense of their own worth by teaching them to read and express themselves – could grow into a sustainable, replicable program - a network of community center/libraries as a vehicle for bringing a lost generation of children into society. Jane Meyers has an extraordinary ability to connect people with a vision and instill a sense of great purpose – whether connecting volunteers to the gains made by the children helped by the Lubuto Library, the Zambian Government to a way to tackle a country-wide project, or Zambian librarians to the need to staff the growing libraries – to create systemic change.
