Ready for Reading MissionReady for Reading (RfR), a separately funded program of Partners In Health recently opened the 7800 sq. ft. Rwinkwavu Community Library and Learning Center in Rwinkwavu, in the Eastern Province of Rwanda, serving a district population of 21,000. The aim in building the Community Library and Learning Center is to advance literacy and learning through community-based initiatives, and to support the professional development of literacy teachers and librarians. Ready for Reading works in collaboration with Rwandan librarians and teachers to facilitate the acquisition of language and IT skills, foster a culture of reading and provide access to global information for students, teachers and the larger population. Attaining these skills will offer individuals, and the community as a whole, the ability to achieve sustainable socio-economic transformation. The Community Library and Learning Center will serve as the educational, cultural and information hub of the community.
Why Libraries in Rwanda?The education system in Rwanda was all but destroyed in the 1994 genocide with the loss of teachers and administrators and the destruction of schools and learning materials. Ready for Reading is working to address this lack of existing infrastructure, materials and programming necessary to advance literacy, learning and access to information. Rwandans need educational tools that will enable them to hope for and achieve a better future.
