About the Mobile Library Project
Queen of Sheba International is collaborating with IFIYE center this year to increase access to libraries in Mogadishu. IFIYE is an educational center based in Mogadishu Somalia, which promotes the culture of reading and creative writing in Somali speaking society, with a particular focus on youth. Watch Now to see how your support will support literacy in Somalia this year.
If you would like to know more about our Mobile Library project learn more about here and share with your family and friends because of it a cause worth supporting. Together we can raise literacy in Somalia!
A library isn't just four walls with shelves filled with rows of books. We believe that a library is a key community hub where imaginations are feed, inspiration is ignited and dreams are foster. There is a huge difference between children whose imagination and curiosities are given the room to expand and explore compared with children who are only given a taste of unlimited potential yet not allowed to grow up in. Support us spread the need for more libraries in Somalia, SHARE our story.
Feel free to share our fundraising page at our GoFundMe
Should you wish to donate books to our library project please bring them with you and we will add it to our collection bin at the end of the event.
