Our History

  • We have built 6 Libraries and Learning Centres since 2015 and together transformed six aspirational communities in Kenya. Our LLCs are made from 40ft shipping containers, stocked with donated books by UK public and converted in Kenya by community volunteers. We provide continuous support: e.g. Young Writer Competition, arts sessions & training.

Beneficiaries

  • Children / Young People

    Children and young people of all ages and abilities have access to our free libraries. Young adults have the opportunity to manage and maintain our LLCs and engage in governance.

Our Vision for a better future

  • We would like to build 30 LLCs by 2030 in Kwale, South Coast of Kenya, while also working with other partners across Kenya helping them establish their own libraries. We would like to expend beyond Kwale county before moving into different Countries.

Our goals to make a difference

  • To provide access to reading materials to one new community annually and raise their literacy levels

  • Import and distribute 40,000 books every year thus giving at least 250,000 the chance to read.

  • Provide developmental activities to at least 35,000 children each year so they get to be creative.

  • Work in partnerships to ensure more communities benefit.

  • Donate textbooks and storybooks to organisations such Universities and schools throughout Kenya .
