Maria's Libraries

Maria's Libraries is dedicated to building and strengthening Kenya's library network. We employ a responsible method of international development, basing all of our work on sound research at the forefront of development studies. In addition, everything we do is demand driven, based on needs identified by local communities and relevant government agencies. As a non-governmental organization, we proactively seek to ensure that our work strengthens and builds upon government systems.
