My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lubuto Library Partners, Washington, DC, USA
When I was first introduced to The Lubuto Library Project I was very impressed with its scope and accomplishments. Lubuto has built sustainability into its structure by working closely with the Zambian government and Zambia Library Services. This collaboration is essential for a successful program.
The key to Lubuto's success is the vision it has for the vulnerable children of Zambia and their need for a safe haven. All of us who work with Lubuto embrace that vision. The importance of a safe place to read, to play, to study and to perform is central to the growth of each individual.
An exciting component of Lubuto is the use of virtually indestructible laptops by the children to aid with their learning to read. Reading programs have been translated into the several Zambian dialects by Zambian teachers so that the children can learn in their mother tongue.
As a retired middle school librarian/teacher I am thrilled to have discovered Lubuto Library Project and look forward to a long association with it. I encourage others to join me in volunteering.
