Empower the Gambia projects in rural Gambia

Empower the Gambia projects in rural Gambia have two libraries set up in Daru and Sara Kunda with a third at Kerawan being fitted out ready to open in July 2015. They rely on donations of books, shelving and library resources to send out to the libraries and 8 schools they support - so any school or public libraries that have unwanted but still usable books, shelving or just general library resources who are interested in linking with them within a 30 mile radius of Swindon in Wiltshire would be very much appreciated. 

Their last newsletter (prior to their most recent trip in March 2015) is downloadable from the link below and you can also see updates on www.facebook.com/EmpowertheGambia.
