Through the Story for Chela Campaign, Start a library is on a mission to raise 30 million Kenya shillings to install 100 libraries in public schools in Kenya. On 4th of November, 2015 Start a Library’s #StoryForChela successfully installed the first library at MCO Joy school in Mathare. Start a Library donated 1000 books to MCO Joy Library.

Reading is a simple, if not the only way of improving literacy in our schools. More than just going through the syllabus, students need to set aside time for reading stories. As Situma Mummba, a teacher at MCO Joy school says, “No education will take place without a library.”

This installation library would not have been possible the generous contribution from Diamond Trust Bank as part of their one million shilling contribution towards the Chela Campaign.
