Furnishing Emanyinya Library

A microproject by Education Partnerships Africa Vetted since 2017 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

Emanyinya Secondary School has recently built a new library, funded by the government through a program called Total Transition from Primary to Secondary School. It is modern and well-built, but is not furnished. We have responded to an appeal from the school to contribute funds for furniture, such as shelves, desks and chairs, to create a learning environment that students can take advantage of.

Challenge

Emanyinya's new library is an empty shell. The new building, funded by the government through a program called Total Transition from Primary to Secondary School, is a brilliant structure with tiled floors and glass windows, but there is nowhere for students to sit and read or for books to be displayed and easily accessed. The funding for the library did not extend to furnishing it, leaving the school and students unable to take full advantage of this new structure.

Solution

The school is now fundraising to furnish the library with new modern furniture, such as shelves, desks and chairs. EPAfrica worked with Emanyinya Secondary School in 2014 and 2015, and have a strong ongoing relationship with the headteacher, Musa Obura, and deputy headteacher, Douglas Efedha. In the course of our ongoing communication, we discovered this need. We have created this mircoproject to enable Emanyinya's international friends to support this campaign.

Long-Term Impact

Furnishing this new library will enable future generations of Emanyinya students to access learning resources and study in a well-lit, furnished and comfortable environment. The new Kenyan syllabus is placing more emphasis than ever before on independent learning and critical thinking. The opportunity to read and do group work in a well-equipped learning environment is vital to enable students to progress.
