My project has a vision to create a network of mobile libraries across villages and remote areas of Cameroon, to facilitate the learning process for youths in these communities and thereby increasing their access to further education and job opportunities. I believe education is the epicenter of our society. In the word of J. F. Kennedy, “Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.” Mobile libraries will serve to increase the educational potential of young people living in communities where the standards of education are low.
