Our Global Giving Campaign
This Project is meant to furnish a Library with resources in Little Rock ECD Center in Kibera Kenya. The goal is to add resources in the library and increase the ratio of books to child from 1:3 to 1:1. Resources available in the library currently are limited, from books to furniture to administration staff. The goal of this project is to create an environment in the school library that can provide and enable the children with resources that will help them expand their knowledge base.
