Akili Library offers a safe place where children and teens can come to meet their friends, study for school - when there is no space at home, read for pleasure, or just to feel safe. Older students and graduates will now use the library to give back to the community or volunteer by tutoring and mentoring younger students, training them on computer applications among other activities. To other community members the Library is a way to access information, use a computer, spread ideas, complement academic studies, or simply to relax with a good book.
It has been a long journey for us. We took the road less travelled by coming back to our community to be the change we would want to see. It has not been easy. We have struggled and continue to do so to provide for the children and teachers we serve. The good news is that God has been faithful and has continued to provide for us. We would like to take this opportunity to convey our heartfelt gratitude to Better World Books and the entire literacy council for awarding us the grant. The grant has literally changed the lives of the children and youth in Obunga slums. To all our friends who remember our ministry in their prayers, we say THANK YOU! May God richly bless you all. Above all, we are so grateful to God for answering our prayers and working in ways we cannot see to provide for our ministry. He has shown us that all things are possible with HIM if we believe. (Matthew 19:26)
