All donations end up in a 40ft shipping container!
We aim to send out a shipping container to Kenya at least once a year.
The shipping container is converted into a library, stocking all the books and other items it contained. It is also used by nearby schools for lessons.
Once the library is complete, it is maintained by local volunteers. Two of our more established libraries each have over 1,000 members and 250 visits per month!
Our support for our community partners never stops.
We maintain community engagement by hosting arts and crafts activities, Young Writer competitions, multi-activity days, reading activities, youth and volunteers training sessions.
Adults who could not speak English as well as their children are now fluent and some even return to adult education.
We truly empower our communities in Kenya.
