Strong Start to Building a Mobile Library

So far, the Mobile Library project has received $112 dollars. Thanks to our generous donors, we will be able to buy 20 picture books for children and novels for adults for the mobile library. The books will be very much appreciated by the residents of villages where they do not have regular access to reading materials. Once we buy the books, we will be able to transport them by bicycle to certain villages, but we still need more funds to be able to buy the motorbike and pay the salary of a driver. The motorbike, which has a cart attached to the back, will facilitate the task of traveling long distances over various types of terrain and delivering books to more remote villages. We look forward to beginning the project, and thank our generous donors for their help in providing reading materials to those who do not have regular access.
