#AccessToInformation as catalyst for Africa’s sustainable development
Learn, collaborate, Implement
Library Aid Africa (formerly known as ‘Library and You’) is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to revamp libraries in Africa to increase their societal impact. The organization focuses on access to information through pragmatic initiatives, which are designed to create awareness and resuscitate libraries in schools and communities. We operate from Nigeria, with partners and volunteer presence in over 10 African countries.
At Library Aid Africa we believe that access to information is pertinent to develop an informed literate citizen. As this equips the mind of the citizenry with adequate information and knowledge that will enable them to contribute meaningfully to the socioeconomic development of their immediate society.
However, there is no access to information without efficient and functional libraries. As libraries are the only institution that provides free and equitable access to information and knowledge for all. To this effect, for the past few years we have engaged on initiatives that fosters access to information through functional and efficient libraries.
