The Library Project

San Diego State University theatre professor Peter Larlham (Kongwa School ex-pupil) created an initiative to start a library at Mnyakongo School in Kongwa, Tanzania, after his visit there in 2008 when he saw a small room with a few shelves and less than 100 books which was called the library.

The school, which at that time served 800 elementary pupils from ages 7 to 12, is in a remote and economically depressed region; it had no electricity and rudimentary educational facilities.
