  • Description


    Kafui is a young and amazing Ghanaian who likes to meet new people as he journeys to build 10 libraries each year across Africa to uplift children in very remote communities who are denied Quality education. He is the founder of the place.

    This is a registered nonprofit he founded in Ghana which currently impacts over 15,000 children across Africa with his innovative rural library building project. Within 3 years of initiation, we have built 25 innovative rural libraries spread across the country.

    My burning desire is for every child to experience the full blessings that comes with reading Books.

    We're just getting started, you have a part to play in this as well.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Because we present each volunteer with a special field experience and opportunity to touch a life and help children to see the light.

    Since 2013, all our volunteers work with much passion because we give them the right tools, experiences, and fun trips whenever needed.

    We have won several Awards because of the great teamwork to achieve and make an impact together.

    I love to meet new people and I'm simply the friend you will want to always speak to.

    Our team is specially positioned and trained o make sure you feel at home even as you volunteer.

    Ghana is considered one of the leading African countries in tourism, I will also share my library building strategy and other cultural experiences with all. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to learn our local languages and dances and as well visit very exciting places here.
