Sunday "Free Time" at Talek Primary School Library

Mara School Libraries Initiative

In the Maasai Mara of Kenya, we develop libraries at the public schools most in need. They quickly become learning centers for the whole school and beehives of activity. We work closely with teachers to determine what's needed — with high standards of quality and relevance — and then purchase everything in Kenya through our partner Text Book Centre in Nairobi. We also run capacity-building workshops to train teachers and students on maintaining the resource and creating programs that will inspire the next generation to read, learn, and grow; and we hold follow-up assessments to gauge impact and see where the resource can be improved.

Talek Library


We renovated a neglected building in the center of Aitong Primary's campus and converted it to a beautiful library and learning center with 2000 books, digital resources, and conservation materials for 1100 students. This is now a model for future primary school libraries.
