We Are Building a Children’s Library in Madagascar

Posted on Posted in Africa, Capacity Building, Conservation, Education, Madagascar

The village of Anevoka has plenty of kids but no kids’ library. Through our volunteers we have donated enough books to the local primary school to establish a small library. But space has been a major issue at the school and there is already a shortage of classrooms. To create a library, we needed a new building.

This year we are happy to announce that Anevoka Primary School will have a brand new building that houses a children’s library, the very first in the region! In addition, the construction will include two dormitories to accommodate the teachers.

At LVDI International we believe a book can change a child’s life and a library can transform an entire community. We thank our generous donors and dedicated partners, namely GERP, Green Teen Team, DBIOS-University of Turin and Parco Natura Viva for joining us in this effort and for making the library a reality!
