Why Libraries

To us, education is #1, and equal access to it is our founding principle. But in too many places, this dream could not be further from reality. We develop high-quality, relevant, modern libraries for rural public schools most in need. We have found this to be the single most effective way to support literacy, encourage a love of reading and lifelong learning, nurture critical thinking, help teachers create programs, and spread the power of knowledge fairly to marginalized communities.

We've brought libraries to students in Amazigh communities of Morocco anxious to learn English and now develop comprehensive libraries for rural schools in Maasai communities of Kenya. Over the past 10 years, we have witnessed that one great library can transform a whole school and impact the lives of 1000s of young people, year after year.
