Challenge

Akweley, a deprived community faces the following challenges: poverty, high illiteracy rate and inadequate basic school infrastructure. BTRF aims at freeing children from such communities from the cycle of poverty and high illiteracy rate. We believe this can be done by creating and equipping library facilities for schools in such deprived communities, develop the love of reading among school children and to provide reading materials and ICT tools to help promote a knowledge driven communities

Solution

The libraries which will be provided with a variety of high quality selected resources, information and tools in all format will ensure that each of these 500 pupils get equitable access to resources irrespective of constrains at home. The project will help develop their literacy skills, enrich their mental and intellectual growth and help promote and sustain the habit and enjoyment of reading.This will enhance their quality of education and help break the vicious cycle of illiteracy and poverty

Long-Term Impact

The two libraries will serve as a gateway to knowledge and help bring to the barest minimum the high illiteracy rate in the community. The speaking, writing, and reading skills of these 500 beneficiaries will be developed. Their knowledge curiosity and confident level will also be built as they go through rare books of literature of their interest in their reading clubs. In effects the two libraries will exhibit positive impact on the academic life of the pupils towards a brighter future.
