Corporate Social Responsibility

Strong CSR Programs

The Library Project has worked with hundreds of corporate partners over the past ten years improving rural literacy in Asia. Each of these partnerships begins with our organization listening to the individual needs of each corporation, and then crafting a CSR program that truly fits into the culture of the company. This is a big reason why in 2015, 62% of our revenue came from repeat corporate donors.

 

Big or Small

No matter the size of your company; small or large, you can make a difference. Our corporate donors range from United Technologies (aerospace) to Urban Soup Kitchen (local restaurant chain). Each of our corporate partners approach CSR in their unique manor. There is no “right way” to give back, there is only “your way.” We look at your company’s size, industry, history and locations . . . then we work together to create a program that fits your budget and expectations.

Financial Transparency

The Library Project is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that aims to make every dollar donated count. We pride ourselves on our financial efficiency, donor accountability, and operational transparency. Through our in-depth Annual Reports, the Library Project is an open book. It is important to us that all donors and volunteers truly understand how The Library Project spends their generous financial contributions and how our libraries benefit the children we impact. The Library Project consistently strives for 100% transparency.

Strong Programmatic Results

At The Library Project we believe that measuring our impact is incredibly important. It provides data so that we can continually improve our programs. We also believe it is important to communicate, both the successes and challenges, that we face to those that support us. To date, we have impacted over a half million children through providing access to libraries in their rural primary schools. The beautiful thing about a school library is it lives, it stays just a relevant on day one as it will ten years into the future. Because of this new children annually gain access to these beautiful libraries and the total impact a library has on a community grows annually.

Training is critical to the long-term success of a library donation. Teachers at rural primary schools and administrators at orphanages all receive training on how to manage their new library. This training course is the first day of a three-year relationship between The Library Project team that ensures each and every library we donate operates at the highest level. Training is a critical part of every library donation.

It is not enough to just provide libraries, it is critical to work directly with the children. We take the necessary time to introduce the children to their new library, talk to them about the importance of reading, and how each book is a window to another world. At the end of each literacy program the children understand that this new library will be open to them and they will be able to check books out for overnight reading. Children are always very excited.

Employee Volunteer Involvement

At The Library Project we are very proud of all our corporate volunteers. Simply put, we could not do what we do without their support. Volunteerism at The Library Project is real work. Your team will leave a library donation tired, happy and feeling as if they made a positive impact in the lives of children attending a rural primary school.
