Lubuto's Decade of Success

"What I find most inspiring about Lubuto is that children who have lived their lives in the margins suddenly find themselves at the centre – and learn that they deserve to be there."
—Stacy Langner, Lubuto's first Regional Director

Since our founding in 2005, Lubuto libraries have had over 500,000 visits from Zambian children and youth and each year some 30,000 new visitors are introduced to the book collections, interact with staff and participate in Lubuto programs. The immediate impact of Lubuto's books and programs in the arts, drama, mentoring, computer literacy, and outreach to vulnerable children in Zambia is felt upon the first visit to any of the libraries and is realized as the first Lubuto kids are now young adults. Lubuto's success in establishing safe havens for children to experience open access public library services and in partnering with local governments and communities to ensure sustainability has now become a model for the region.

2005 Shining a Beacon of Hope

"Lubuto Libraries will provide an opening into the world, making available education and information and, most importantly, giving children hope by offering them a window from which to look at a great big world outside."
—Carmen Martinez, former U.S. Ambassador to Zambia
