Likoni Empowerment Library Shows Educational Documentaries to Children

Likoni Empowerment Library shows educational documentaries to children every other Friday. This is a new project started by Evans Omondi, our Resource Coordinator.

The aim of this project is to encourage a culture of reading for our students and the Likoni community at large. This documentaries are educational in nature, and always have a lesson to teach the students at the end. For the students that don’t like reading, they benefit through these documentaries by developing a love for coming to the library.

“We got many students when we put on this documentaries, it is amazing how kids love watching educational movies. I believe this will help our children to love coming to the library and see it as a good thing and not as a taboo or a stressful issue,” said Evans.

At the end of the documentaries, the children are given an opportunity to ask questions and at the same time exchange ideas about what each one of them has learned.

Thanks to Safaricom Foundation donation of curriculum books, library users have tripled from 3000 to 9000 during April holiday and doubled from 3000 to 6000 during school days.

At Hatua Likoni, we try to make sure that the children enjoy while they study and we do our best to instill a culture of reading in them.
