Our Goal

Our Goal is to build libraries across rural areas in Nigeria

To impact 20 million children in 774 local governments in Nigeria with access to an ultra-modern library within a walking distance from their homes.

  • With 10.5 million out-of-school children in Nigeria, the highest in the world, 1 in every 5 of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria.

    Returning children to the classroom is a huge challenge, and becomes more daunting when the learning facilities are non-existent or dilapidated.

  • Attractive Places Attract Young Faces

    Our libraries will be functional, ultra-modern and accessible to the poor, the young and impressionable knowledge seeker, in all polling wards in Nigeria. This in turn will make reading attractive to deprived communities and stir young readers towards building their lives and making meaningful contribution to the society. Hence, the name ‘Read2Build’.
