Libraries for All

My journey started with a small project; to send books to a place where people lacked access to them. The idea grew, and grew until I had spent over a year planning (2016-2017), collecting books, applying for a grant, packing a container, and finally traveling across the world. My first library, pictured below, opened in July 2017 after numerous hurdles detailed in my blog. Despite that, my first library, located in Ndejje, Uganda, became the most treasured and highly utilized space in all of its surrounding community. This gave me energy and excitement to formally create my own non-profit in 2018 (status sponsored through Visions Made Viable).

After the first library, I realized the widespread need for access to education, and how marginalized groups worldwide struggle to gain access. Libraries have proven to be a simple yet sustainable way to provide access to educational supplies, which in turn can have so many positive effects. Not only do Libraries for All give access to reading materials, they also offer safe spaces for people of all ages and walks of life to learn and grow.

Since then, I have built three more libraries, one in Kolkata, India, (2018) one in Seattle, USA (2020) and one in Zimbabwe (2023).
