Art of a Child book haven

From Emmanuel Anguyo: Art of a Child book haven is a space for children to come together to read, play games, and be a vibrant part of the community. As with all place across the world, 2020 was a difficult year with many challenges. The library was closed on the 18th of March due to the national lockdown and reopened in July. The library received permission from the authorities to run our literacy programs for children and their mothers. All of the literacy clubs were run in adherence to the government procedures that were given. Art of a Child celebrated the International Day of the Girl literacy camp in October with many activities for the local children, including lessons on female empowerment. There is attendance of up to 45% of the local youth population at the book haven, and hope to see that number climb even higher as we continue operations. The library helps keep the community spirit alive during the pandemic with its many literary activities, and help keep the spirit of learning alive with literacy and entrepreneurship skills.
