Like mushrooms? I keep coming across library support organizations

This one is called People United for Libraries in Africa
2008 marks PULA’s 5-year anniversary as an organization devoted to providing libraries and books to needful communities in Africa. Since its inception in 2003, PULA has, with your generous support…

… donated funds for the construction of a library for Malawi Children’s Village (an AIDS orphanage) to serve both the orphanage and the surrounding community. In addition, PULA shipped 3,000 pounds of books to the library and provided funding for librarian training. Since its completion, the MCV Library has been designated “best library in the region” and has been awarded several computer study stations by the American Embassy in Malawi.

‪ …partnered with Murumba Uganda to build a community library in Butiru, Uganda, and secured a $5,000 grant for the purchase of new library books, most of them with African storylines and themes.

‪ …worked in cooperation with the Children’s Centre at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka to set up primary school libraries throughout the area. Over twenty schools now participate in this ongoing program and receive African children’s literature, textbooks, and educational books, courtesy of PULA.
