Literacy is very important – many would say a human right. A good quality basic education equips pupils with literacy skills for life and further learning; literate parents are more likely to keep their children healthy and send their children to school; literate people are better able to access other education and employment opportunities; and, collectively, literate societies are better geared to meet development challenges.
Mogonjet Library project was started with the aim of developing a reading culture in Mogonjet community. The facility will contain curriculum-based books, novels and other literature towards a holistic education.
So far Mogonjet Library has reached the roof level and awaiting funding.
