Review for Lubuto Library Partners, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was lucky enough to be able to spend time at one of Lubuto's libraries in Lusaka when I visited Zambia last September. I had no previous experience of visiting anywhere like Lubuto, but if I'm honest, spending time at the library was one of the highlights of my trip! It was wonderful to see how much the children visiting the library enjoyed spending time there and their enthusiasm for the different activities on offer (drama groups, use of the laptops, reading together, board games to name but a few) was infectious. The Lubuto Library Project provides a great resource; it was humbling to see how much the children got out of their visits, and their acceptance of me as a visit was very touching. The staff on site were brilliant: welcoming and warm, engaging enthusiastically with the children; organising/ participating in games, dancing competitions, art and craft activities and more! In addition, the staff all took time with individual children, encouraging and teaching them to read, helping with homework or just listening if the child just wanted to talk.
As I say, I really enjoyed my visit to Lubuto in Lusaka, and hope to return!
