Lubuto Library Partners is an innovative development organization that builds
the capacity of public libraries to create opportunities for equitable
and poverty reduction. Its mission is to enlighten and enrich the
lives of children and youth in sub-Saharan Africa, especially those not in
school and highly vulnerable.

Lubuto constructs enduring open-access libraries whose design is inspired by
traditional and contemporary social, economic and cultural patterns and which
freely offer comprehensive collections of well-chosen books and technology

dynamic library programming offering education, psychosocial support and self-
expression through reading, music, art, drama, computers, mentoring and other
activities.

LLP maintains a continuous learning relationship for children and youth
library services with a growing network of Lubuto libraries owned and operated
