Our Vision

The successful model of the Jifundishe Free Library in Ngongongare Village, near Arusha, the gold standard for libraries in Tanzania, will be used by the Maktaba Project as a template to realize the Project’s vision of each library as a true centerpiece of the community functioning both as an education center and a community meeting place. Toward that end, each library will have a board composed of a diverse group of leaders from each community.
