The Munali Youth Empowerment Program (MYEP) provides early learning resources—books, reading workshops, health and safety programs—in the Lusaka Province of Zambia.
MYEP’s Knowledge in Motion initiative began in 2020. Since then, it has impacted more than 150 children with book deliveries and literacy workshops, facilitating unity through shared storytime. Books are borrowed on a rotating basis and are read individually or in a group, with many MYEP volunteers offering their time to read out loud. Moving forward, the project will provide the option for children and their families to receive books and educational materials in the comfort of their own homes.
Donated funds provide school supplies, books, and bicycles, which are essential for volunteers to reach more children in the community. Just 30 USD builds a new streetside library in Zambia.
