Libraries and Books

Reading is key to students’ development. Books open up the world, expand the possible, and facilitate boundless learning. However, many Malawian schools do not even have the simplest of libraries or even sufficient textbooks. This is one of many factors that prevent these students from continuing their education and escaping the cycle of poverty. WH has constructed 2 libraries at the secondary schools we (and our partners) have built, as well as furnishing them with shelves and desks. In addition, in these schools as well as several primary schools, we have sent over 4,000 books for students to read. Teachers report students are motivated by the presence of books and read them regularly. Now, we want to expand this project to other schools supported by WH and continue to build library buildings and add bookshelves as we construct more schools.
