For this task we are looking for volunteers to help us identify organizations that donate/supply books or possibly local publishing houses that we might contact to help provide enough books to adequately stock a school library as well as establish an appropriate ratio of text and reading books to students at the school. Books should be written in English.
We are happy to report that Darian Book Aid has already agreed to ship some of the needed textbooks to the school.
We have partnered with SNV and Mobile Transaction Limited to open a new library in a district which had no library for 20 years. This is a break through hence we need more books, a computer, printer, chairs and tables to accomodate more children.
Since we started this project in 2009, we have managed to source primary and secondary school books, but those who are at colleges and those doing distance learning find it difficult doing their assignments. These clients can bring in revenue for our project.
The primary school in Jinkfuin is in need of more books to lend to the students. Story books that the students can borrow and read as well as textbooks covering topics such as history, geography and science would all benefit the school very much. While some English and Math books have already been donated, additional books in these topic areas would also be a great help due to the increasing population of students.
