Libraries for Schools

In the continuing work of ABCD to improve the opportunities for a better education for children in the Kilimanjaro Region, the first ABCD sponsored school library will be set up in one primary school this spring!

Over the past 5 years, thanks to our donors and supporters, more children in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania are attending school, and starting their school day with a good breakfast. The children are eager to be in school and are committed to working hard to accomplish their dreams. However, due to the lack of reading resources, achieving their dreams continues to be a struggle. The children do not have easy access to books.

The first step is for our team of volunteers travelling to Tanzania in January to bring with them some donated books. ABCD will also be purchasing additional books from a local publisher. Our plan is to engage the local community to develop the library with us and to assist in making it a valued and sustainable resource for all their children. Hopefully this first library will be a model for further libraries in more schools in the future.

If you wish to donate books or send funds to buy locally published books, please contact us at We will be happy to discuss this with you.
