That is why African Girls have taken upon the initiative to empower communities by providing them with libraries. This initiative called “One Community One Library” hopes to enrich communities with the power of knowledge.

What women around the world have in common is the ambition to advance their families, their communities and themselves. What they lack are opportunities, particularly access to education, healthcare, and economic development.
