My Little Travelling Library

"We are travelling with knowledge to the hearts of the future" Lack of access to reading materials and the absence of strong reading culture combined to create viscous cycle of low literacy level among children in Tanzania.

Children have been unable to access interesting literature and hence developed a poor reading habit which is one reason for the very poor performance in their studies leading to low literacy. "My Little Travelling Library" concept is creating a network of mobile handcart libraries bringing books, run interactive reading classes and reading competition to children in rural areas. through this work,

In #Tanzania, lack of access to reading materials—and the absence of a strong reading culture— results in a vicious cycle of low-literacy levels among children. With the belief that reading can open doors for youth, Innocent E Junior co-founded My Little Travelling Library 📗📚📘 in 2014.

Through a network of mobile handcart libraries delivering books, interactive reading lessons, and reading competitions to children in rural areas without libraries, Innocent and his team help youth discover a passion for reading and independent learning. My Little Travelling Library makes learning fun, bringing its books and reading clubs not only to schools, but to youth-friendly spaces such as sports fields, beaches, and more.

In 2016, the organization supplied nearly 20,000 books to its mobile libraries serving 2,400 youth in 15 primary schools across Mwanza, Tanzania. Each child borrows an average of 29 books per quarter, and teachers have reported an astounding jump in attendance from 40 to 85 percent since the arrival of My Little Travelling Library.

The organization is growing fast thanks to the support of 100 local and international volunteers, most of whom are university students studying education. 👩‍🏫

#MLTL African Child Day's Event - 16th June 2016 26/06/2016

“Life's full of events - they occur and you adjust, you roll and move on. But at some point you realize some events are actually developments. You realize there's a big plan out there you know nothing about, and a development is a first step in that new direction. Sometimes things feel like big-time developments but in time you adjust, you find a new way and realize they didn't throw you off course, they didn't change you. They were just events. The tricky part is telling the difference between the two."

Maya Angelou, Poet, Activist And Singular Storyteller, Dies At 86

(born Marguerite Ann Johnson on April 4, 1928) was an American author and poet who has been called "America's most visible black female autobiographer" by scholar Joanne M. Braxton. She is best known for her series of six autobiographical volumes, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first and most highly acclaimed, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her first seventeen years. It brought her international recognition, and was nominated for a National Book Award. She has been awarded over 30 honorary degrees and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her 1971 volume of poetry, Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'Fore I Diiie.

Angelou was a member of the Harlem Writers Guild in the late 1950s, was active in the Civil Rights movement, and served as Northern Coordinator of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Since 1991, she has taught at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where she holds the first lifetime Reynolds Professorship of American Studies. Since the 1990s she has made around eighty appearances a year on the lecture circuit. In 1993, Angelou recited her poem "On the Pulse of Morning" at President Bill Clinton's inauguration, the first poet to make an inaugural recitation since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy's inauguration in 1961. In 1995, she was recognized for having the longest-running record (two years) on The New York Times Paperback Nonfiction Bestseller List.

With the publication of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Angelou was heralded as a new kind of memoirist, one of the first African American women who was able to publicly discuss her personal life. She is highly respected as a spokesperson for Black people and women. Angelou's work is often characterized as autobiographical fiction. She has, however, made a deliberate attempt to challenge the common structure of the autobiography by critiquing, changing, and expanding the genre. Her books, centered on themes such as identity, family, and racism, are often used as set texts in schools and universities internationally. Some of her more controversial work has been challenged or banned in US schools and libraries.

www.npr.org Angelou refused to speak for much of her childhood and revealed the scars of her past in her groundbreaking memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. She opened doors for black and female writers.
