BOOKS + INTERNET SUPPORT FOR ELIKYA LIBRARY

Mbandaka, CONGO (DRC)

Project Description

The Elikya Library exists as a spot for local students to increase knowledge, carry out online research, and prepare school projects. Several higher level and secondary schools take advantage of the books and reliable internet connection at the Elikya library, especially since accessing the internet is often difficult in Congo. Library users are typically young students, civil servants, and poor people. The library includes a reading room, book room, administrative offices, computer room, and a small Marian bookshop. Recently, users were unable to visit the library due to the Covid-19 pandemic lock downs; this has caused many problems for the progress of the library. Project funds are now needed to cover annual internet subscription costs, library maintenance, and the purchase of new editions of books.
