Dedicated to change.
Rural Reading Centers Africa (RRCA) proposes a complementary service to the rural school going population, school dropout and community at large by alluring students, parents and teachers to adopt a culture of acquiring knowledge for their development through the establishment of community libraries.
Through activities surrounding community libraries and various resource centers, community apathy towards their development will be addressed.
In addition, the establishment of a centralized community-owned and managed libraries is a more economically sustainable and accessible solution towards combating poor quality education.
