Review for Lubuto Library Partners, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Shy smiles and big grins: It's a pleasure to see pictures of the children who, though they might have experienced a lot of bad luck in the past, now enjoy some very good luck: they have access to one of the libraries and community centers that Lubuto has built and furnished. For many of these young patrons, this is a life-changing experience. Books! Computers! Art! And in beautiful traditional buildings designed just for them. Lubuto exemplifies a small non-profit that is a great non-profit, able to do amazing things.

This kind of dedication rubs off on those who work with her; volunteers want to do their best for Lubuto, also. It all adds up to a wonderfully efficient non-profit.
