My name is Mercy and I am running a book drive to support a mobile
library run by my charity Ntiamoah Foundation for some rural schools in
my native country Ghana.
Ntiamoah Foundation Mobile Library (NFML) is an initiative borne out of the need to take the love for reading, creativity and knowledge to the doorstep of each and every child in the Foundation’s catchment area and beyond.
The project started with a few books purchased with the very little donation money given to us by well-wishers and proponents of the idea of a Mobile library. This money as little as it was, was used judiciously to purchase four hundred books from the rotary book depot in Tema, at ridiculously low prices of as little as one Ghana Cedis. Other people seeing our efforts also donated their used story books to us and before we knew it, the Ntiamoah Foundation Mobile Library was born.
The project started as pilot with three cluster school in the capital of the Birim North district- New Abirem. The pilot lasted a year by which time; there had been a tremendous interest in the Library and a great demand for it in the area.
Going into the Mobile Library project, it was envisioned that a time will come that the demand for it will be so high that our small staff of five, a single Van and library books of about three thousand five hundred would be insufficient to effectively impact children in all our communities.
The need has therefore come to seek for resources outside of our offices and coffers to be able to carry on this great work. We are looking for all sorts of collaboration in kind or in cash to support us in our work. If you believe children our future, if you believe that every child should be given the opportunity to excel regardless of their background, if you believe in doing good deeds, if you believe that knowledge is power and the ticket out of poverty and into success, then you are who we are looking for.
Support us, support a child today, give them a future, help them discover a different world, build their confidence and self-esteem, let them know that they can do anything they set their mind to with hard work, and you will be helping build a better society and therefore a better country. Help a child to read today!
In return for your help with our Mobile Library we have our T-shirts, Website, Van and Facebook page at your disposal. At every point in time, your generosity will be mentioned and displayed with the Ntiamoah Foundation Mobile Library Brand to let the whole world know what amazing work you have been doing to support these less fortunate children in our society.
Don’t be left out! help a child to read today!
