Tukongote Community Library, Zambia

Because of the rural location of our school and community and the fact that we currently have no mains power, our teachers had nowhere to source ideas or knowledge from before the library was opened. Having the access to the books has made them become much keener in planning their lessons. They are discovering new and exciting ways to teach and impart knowledge. And they themselves are learning in the process of teaching.
