Programs

Elizabeth’s Library International actively pursues potential partnerships and relationships that will benefit underserved communities around the world. In tandem with the establishment of a library, we are developing several programs addressing educational needs in the communities we serve.

Susu Village

Susu Village, Zambia is home to our first Mobile Library Program, which serves many village schools with very limited resources. A specially equipped bicycle and cart travels many kilometers to circulate and share over 3000 books and educational resources. ELI has also funded an orange orchard, a huge vegetable garden, and a goat herd as income generating projects for the community and additional food resources for village children. Susu continues to receive requests from more remote schools for inclusion in the mobile library program.

Current Needs:

- Additional bookshelves for library area

- Local language storybooks
- Motorcycle for expansion of Mobile Library Program

Domboshava

Domboshava Community Library is located in Zimbabwe. In the summer of 2019 the newly built library was dedicated, and is growing rapidly! One of the programs that has been extremely successful is the Domboshava Literacy program. This literacy group began in 2015 with fourteen ladies meeting under a tree learning to read and write for the first time.
 

Many more have joined this literacy program, and they have organized themselves for expansion with administrative positions, serving their families and communities.
 

Current Needs:
- Child size library furniture

- Local language Bibles
- Local language storybooks

 
 

Heart of Mercy

Heart of Mercy school was established when a local pastor saw the need to care for and educate abandoned  street children. A two room school was built, and now has more than 50 students in attendance. For many of these children, the school provides the only opportunity for an education and one meal per day. This school is a wonderful opportunity for  ELI's mission to support educational opportunities

Current Needs:

- Funding for one meal per day per child
- Zimbabwe school textbooks
