Donations received in 2020 will be channelled towards the full restoration of the Makadara library. We’re upgrading it to digital facilities and collections, community gardens and green spaces, event spaces, a toilet block among other joys. We also hope to install a toilet block, wireless internet and carry out urgent repairs on the Banda Street branch. Help us build the libraries of our dreams.
PROGRAMMES x EVENTS
We host a series of arts, academic and skills-based programmes and events that are available free of charge to library users. Due to COVID-19 mandated library closures, and inspired by the UbuntuLoveChallenge, we converted this strand of our work into an activity pack distribution initiative that delivers reading and sanitation materials to the families resident around the libraries. Support our community engagement
RESEARCH x INVENTORY
All our work is grounded in research. This department employs the most number of young library lovers who work tirelessly to sort through all the libraries treasures. In 2020, the inventory team of 6 will be working on weeding the libraries collection, and the research team of 4 our most ambitious research project yet. We also hope to digitised the libraries collection of newspapers photographs and maps, dating as far back as 1906.
PEOPLE X OPERATIONS
Support our ambitious team and the machine that keeps the Bunk going. This strand of our organisation is often the most challenging to raise resources for albeit the most critical for the successful delivery of all our projects. In 2019, Book Bunk provided employment to 30 Kenyans and taught skills to 68 others. Our heaviest investment will always be in people. Help us pay our people.
