Summary

The Project will help build a library in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, Kenya, that will provide a rich source of critical thinking and education and assist the poverty stricken community. We seek donor's support to help provide education to children through the setting up and establishing of this library. We know that through library resources we will empower the lives of these young people and the future of the community.

Challenge

Kibera Slum has experienced poverty, illiteracy and sexual coercion as a result of unwanted commercial sex workers. This has resulted in a deprived community whose only hope is continuing an existence in poor living arrangements. Each household is vulnerable and much of this vulnerability is due to a lack of knowledge.

Solution

The transformation of thinking is the key to empowering a community to change. Through the establishment of this library, we not only offer resources and a place for study, but also a place to meet, discuss, and support the members of the community as they work to break the bonds of poverty, immorality and illiteracy.

Long-Term Impact

Education is the key to building a thriving, independent community of people who are empowered to make positive choices and changes. The impact of this library as a resource of education will lead this community in to the future for generations to come.

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
