Community Library! (advice, comments and support needed)
Apr 23, 2014

Community Library is a project I have always dreamed of in making it happen for my community.

Erakor is the name of the village I come from and it's situated in the South West of Efate Island in Vanuatu and consist of about 4000 people.

The rate of literacy in my community has dropped immensely according to a national census that had occurred back in 1999. Since then, things have gradually changed over the last 15 years with more kids ending up in well paid jobs and some younger people obtaining university degrees.

Despite these changes, most of the community members are left with not much opportunities and or motivations to further boost their personal career developments. It has come to believe that, low self esteem relating to minimal educational background has lead to one of the many-er courses on these issues particularly literacy.

Given the current situation, I have been inspired by my initiating idea of creating a community library and also a way of giving back to my community. A place where, everyone, young and old go to read, write and develop personal and professional reading & writing skills (literacy).

I hope to get more ideas, advices, stories and inspirations to further make this happen or if you or anyone knows of any supporting organization or any funding bodies who can help make this happen, please do get in contact with us by emailing us or commenting below.

Many thanks.
