Library and  Resource Center-Kenya

The Covid-19 pandemic exposed a dire scarcity of safe community spaces, especially for at-risk children. Upendo upcycled a US shipping container into a library and Resource Center in Nakuru, Kenya. The library has created safe spaces to bridge the informational divide. The space includes a library, a computer lab, and an office. The center incorporates a social outreach office and provides resources to at-risk, homeless children in their transition back to society. We plan to offer monthly mentorship programs and workshops.
