Rural Primary Schools
95% of the libraries we donate go into rural primary schools. This is because there is a clear need for libraries and because teachers are available to manage the libraries on a day-to-day basis. The schools we work with are underfunded and tend to be smaller in size, between 50-200 children in attendance. The size of a school matter in that it determine the amount of money local governments provide.
Local Governments & Education Policy
At 100% of the rural primary school libraries we’ve partnered with the local Board of Education. It is essential to engage the local government and support their future plans for their school district. In total, we’ve partnered with over one hundred local governments over the past ten years. These partnerships help us to push the teachers and administrators to meet our organization’s literacy goals at each of the libraries we donate.
