BOOKS FIRST, TECHNOLOGY SECOND
Our primary goal is to help students acquire meaningful levels of literacy that will form a critical building block in their future. This means giving every student access to a library filled with inspiring and educational books. If a school also has the capacity to support technology, we additionally take the necessary steps to provide computers and interactive whiteboards. We provide Koha library software, eKitabu and Sugarizer software. We also provide training in basic research and technology skills, as well as stress the importance of IT in teaching, learning and applications in day-to-day life.
DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS
We provide a system that helps students, teachers and the community become long-term stewards of their library. Our standard package includes: Training in the use of the library for students, librarians, teachers and communities, a rules handbook, a trackable book checkout system, a book labelling system, a governance constitution document, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and a wide range of student-centric and values-driven leadership posters.
EMPOWERING OUR READERS
Our students govern and manage their library. They are educated about their constitution, their rights, and read from a wide variety of more than 2,000 specially selected books. These cover regional, national and international issues in current affairs, politics, history, science, culture, religion, business and economics. We strive to ensure that we provide essential Afrocentric books.
