This is now a beautiful library.

We develop educational resources and programs in literacy and environmental stewardship, in collaboration with teachers, conservationists, students, and communities. We focus on Amazigh communities of rural Morocco and the Maasai Mara region of Kenya. Our mission is to ignite a love of learning and to empower the next generation in underserved areas with knowledge, resources, and opportunities to become positive, transformative changemakers in this world.

Project most in need:  Library and Science Lab for Maasai Mara High School

Launch of the Talek Primary School Learning Resource Center

Thank you to Nairobi media artist Luigi MK for this sweet video story about the first 3 days! We finished this project in February, and it's the first library and learning resource center of this scale at a public school in the Maasai Mara. We dream of doing two more before the end of 2021. Please help if you can, or contact Barb if you're interested in sponsoring a whole learning center.


The ebook of stories from the 2020 MLP Short Story Competition is available!​

Stories from the 2021 Competition will be out in the fall.



"I have taken part in many interesting ELT events nationwide. Morocco Library Project, though, is exceptionally different; its impact can be felt in our students’ mindset and behavior. MLP’s impact has gone beyond improving English to boosting students’ critical thinking, creativity, self-confidence, and motivation. MLP to me is that abundant source of hope, inspiration, and love. Students from underserved areas are giving more importance to reading as the real engine of change."

We believe in the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a blueprint for peace and well-being for people and the planet, and we focus especially on these.
