Douala Cultural Center & William Wallace Memorial Library (Frieda Ekotto) - Cameroon

Project Goal: $32,000

Current Progress: $22,895 (72.00%)

Container Captain Frieda Ekotto's dream is to create a Cultural Center for young people in Cameroon. The project includes establishing the second William Wallace Memorial Library and offering mobile libraries to increase access to books. Books are extremely important to keep young minds at work. In a country where there are not museums, parks, and other activities for young people, reading is essential to broadening their perspectives and potential. 

Your support of this project will engage a child in discovering the world, and build bridges between the Francophone and Anglophone communities in Cameroon as we share ideas, art, dance, languages, computer skills and- of course- the books that your donations will sponsor.
