   Our Libraries
Our Community Resource Centers (CRCs)  provide library services that makes reading materials available to everybody. This is a great place for students to do homework, get mentoring in reading, math, and science to students who are 13 to 20 years old.

Teachers also use the library’s resources to supplement their own lesson materials and pursue their own out-of-class study needs. In fact, we have seen a sharp increase in reading interest with over 12,000 people using our library facilities.

   Our ICT Programs
Our CRCs also feature Information and Communications Technology (ICT) programs that train children (grades 4-12), teachers, and other adults how to use computers and access the Internet. Not only does this break their sense of isolation from the rest of the world, but they are learning to access information, exchange information, and compete in this emerging online global village.

As part of our rural development goals, to date, over 2,400 schoolchildren and adults have taken introduction ICT classes, and more than 3,000 people have learned and used the Internet.

   Our Children’s Programs
Our CRCs also provide a special place for 3-5 years old members of the community. We teach these youngsters to read and explore, and encourage them to participate in educational and fun activities. We expose them to technology early in their lives with our ICT facilities, while they learn and dream.

   Our Women Programs
Women have to speak up for themselves more now than ever before. Our CRCs offer empowerment programs to assist the development of women and girls, including communication skills. We provide our women and girls coaching to help them to tackle the harmful cultural norms that limit their aspirations.
