Librarians discuss plans for Mama Mtoto in Nairobi
Dear Friends of Maria’s Libraries,
Thank you once again for your generous support of the Mama-Mtoto Story Time project. We have much to report!
We are very pleased to let you know we kicked off the project in April with a meeting of all the librarians in Nairobi. Jennie Glasco of AfricaSOMA, Kenya National Library Services and the US Embassy Resource Center ran the training over two days. The librarians had a great time, discussed their ideas on the project and have begun to start working with the mamas this month.
Since then, our fabulous team has been choosing books, developing curricula and choosing participants for the project. The librarians will officially launch the trainings this month.
Maria’s Libraries’ own Ariel Schwartz is in Kenya for the summer. In addition to Mama Mtoto, she’ll be forging ahead on several other of Maria’s Libraries’ projects-- including the building in Busia. You'll receive a newsletter with some uber-exciting updates at the end of the summer!
Once again, thanks so much for you support and dedication to strengthening the library network in Kenya.
Many good wishes from Kenya and New York,
Eva and Ariel
