Help us start a new library in Lesotho!


From Moscow, Idaho to the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho...

Did you know that TIFO's mission is rooted in capacity building? We work with communities around the world to address environmental health challenges, but at the core of each project is education. We also partner with a wide variety of other NGOs in our projects.

For the next two months, we're supporting a book drive in our community to start a library in The Kingdom of Lesotho. This project is lead by TIFO's Executive Director, Casey Bartrem, and Pamela Rogers. Casey and Pam served in Peace Corps together in Lesotho from 2007-2009. While volunteering there, both Casey and Pam started libraries in their tiny villages - the first their communities had ever seen. They did this in partnership with African Library Project. This summer, they're leading a book drive for ALP to start another new library in a Lesotho secondary school. TIFO is helping out and we hope you'll join us.

You can donate used or new children's books (all ages) for this library from now until August. There are drop off locations around Moscow, including the TIFO building, where books will be stored and sorted until shipment. Don't live in Moscow? Mail the books to us, or donate to cover shipping costs.
African Library Project changes lives by starting libraries in rural Africa. Their grassroots approach mobilizes U.S. volunteers to organize book drives and ship books to start or improve a library. ALP makes lasting impacts for children and communities on both continents.
