Want to get more involved?
The library at Mfuwe Day Secondary School is complete bar from the shelving and in a couple of weeks we will need someone to help the school librarian catalogue all the books kindly donated by I know it is short notice but we were unsure of the completion date having had a few delays. Is there a librarian out there twiddling their thumbs and wondering what to do with themselves?
Throughout the year Project Luangwa’s new Reading Scheme needs volunteers to go into the schools with books from our Amazon Wish List. The idea is that you take a set of books and a book bag containing all the props needed to tell the story such as glove puppets, plastic fruit or whatever is featured in the story. By telling and retelling the story in different ways and getting the kids involved with acting it out, drawing pictures and even reading if they are able we hope to improve their reading skills and English. Aside from the Reading Scheme we need qualified teachers to help with teaching through Happy Readers books and TEFL teachers for older kids and adults.
Volunteers need to be self-funded and if you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
44,000 . . .
. . . is the estimated number of books needed to fill the half a kilometre of bookshelves currently being made for the new library we have built at Mfuwe Day Secondary School. We have already had some great donations and our thanks to the Richardsons and Jill Stewart in Canada, Agincourt and Elmtree Schools in the UK, David Scott and Isaac Kapambwe of the NPAC and all the kind donors who have brought books out in their suitcases or sent them through Pilot Post.
If you would like to bring any up to date reference books or suitable novels in that spare corner of your travel bag we’d love to take them off your hands when you get here. If you can fill a bag then we can arrange for them to be brought to Mfuwe from Lusaka airport free of charge. If you live in the UK and can collect a good number of books we can arrange free shipping to Mfuwe. Email for more details. Thank you everyone. Click on logo below to access the website.
