WEWE – LOPIN Community Based Libraries Project has a mission to establish over 100 community based libraries that will serve over 40,000 orphans and vulnerable children in core rural communities across Southern Nigeria. Your support is vital to our plans to provide books, laptops and desktop computers for these rural community based libraries in Anambra, Akwa-Ibom, Rivers and Imo States in Southern Nigeria. A book, desktop and Laptop can be made available to orphans like Emeka with as little as 50 cents, $175 and $200 respectively. You can help provide access to books for Emeka and the children in his community by helping us fundraise $10,300 to cover the cost of shipping a 40 foot container full of primary and secondary educational books, desktops and laptops.
