About Roland & The Village Library Program

The Village Library Program
The idea behind Village Library Program is to enhance access to text books to educationally marginalized children in particular and children in general through the establishment of textbook exchange and sales points in Cameroon. Children, who are part of the textbook exchange program, are certain to have access to core textbooks (Mathematics, English and French) throughout their entire school program. In that way, children will not be sent away from school due to lack of textbooks and their learning experience will be enhanced. An exchange fee will be charged for those involved in the exchange process by parents, guardians, local authorities among others. An integral component of the Village Library Model is the sales corner. This unit is designed to promote sales of textbooks at a reduced price especially in remote localities where there are currently no book shops.
