We as the Smallest Library in Africa which is based in Mugure slum Nairobi. We are raising 2 million KES for the construction of a permanent library. The amount raise will be used for:
  1. Purchase of the land
  2. Construction of the library.
  3. Furnishing the library.
OUR STORY
On August 6th 2014 the smallest library was birthed, with an aim of establishing ample learning space. It is a make shift library which operates in an open field as from 5pm- 8:30 pm (Mon-Fri). We have two tables; one for reading purposes and the other is used a check in-out desk and book display. for sitting arrangements we have two benches that can only accommodate five children each.
The library has four wooden posts that act as the library boundary. Furthermore it has nail hooks on top where we hang the two rechargeable lights.
CHALLENGES
  1. Weather- due to the fact that we operate on an open field, the change in weather patterns makes it hard for our daily operations. When it rains, we are forced to close the library especially in the months of March, April, May and October. Our library starts in the evening due to the the fact reading under the scorching sun poses a lot of difficulties. 
  2. Lack of resources- insufficiency of books and library necessities has made life difficult for our beneficiaries. Due to the congestion, majority sit on building stones.
ACHIEVEMENTS
  1. Improvement in school performance.
  2. Positive behavioral change.
  3. High literacy rate.
As a library our end in mind is to change the world through the acces of information . Your contribution towards this initiative will be highly appreciated.
