A Community Library Mckenzie Compound, Ndola- Zambia (2008)

McKenzie shanty compound, the second poorest in Ndola, has a population of over 7000 with 1000 orphans. Orphans are mostly cared for by relatives such as grandparents, who are destitute themselves. A community leadership was established in 1998 to oversee the well-being of the orphans, and since then with help from Engedi foundation established a pre-school/elementary school and a feeding program. I initiated and contributed to the Library that was established in the community center in the compound.
