Learning and Libraries Project, “Project LLP”
…Leveraging Libraries for Access to Information and Driving the 21st Century Economy in Nigeria
At YTF, we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to participate in the 21st century information society. We do this by working in partnership with schools and after school hubs, like community groups and libraries. Libraries play an important role as neutral, trusted public spaces and are well positioned to connect the next 4 billion people on the planet. The library is no longer just a repository of information; it’s a place of cooperative education. Libraries are critical connectors for communities and connectors to others.
In 2015, YTF partnered with Beyond Access and the Anambra State Library Board to deliver Project LLP; 12 hours of digital literacy, entrepreneurship and life skills to 500 youth and women in Anambra State, Nigeria.
“The YTF team was wonderful to work with. Serious minded in delivering on the program yet flexible adapting to the local situation at the library. Because of your team’s ability to tell the story of impact, our Library became well known online”.
~ Nkem Osuigwe Ph.D, Director Anambra State Library Board
The training took place at the Kenneth Dike Library. Youth trained were between the ages of 8 to 30. In addition, YTF trained 10 library staff members and 20 teachers to use their new digital literacy knowledge & skills to enhance their professional discipline skills.
Stay tuned to learn about program expansion in 2016.
