A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a specific community/school for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. Learners are at the centre Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) Website: Ph: +977- 1- 4362560 Page | 5 Post Box # 19877 Email:,, Empowering Marginalized Communities of learning in the library. In Nepal, there are not enough training organized for teachers and children on how to use a library. So through this camp, volunteers will organize teaching and learning activities through the use of library resources. It’s a very fun and creative way of learning. Work camps will be organized with the cooperation of local community schools under VIN’s children’s development program and working together with local teachers/children/ villagers. The schools where we are conducting camps lack facilities of a library and other infrastructure. Some schools have some collections, but they are not managed and used well. The rooms are not well painted and books are not arranged in a proper order. Children are not taught the skills of using a library and its importance. Volunteers will not only manage the library, but will also organize activities with children at school and conduct some classes on how a library is managed and used. The library camp will help children to develop reading and writing skills. Volunteers with abilities on sports, arts & crafts, music, dance, drama, in & outdoor group games are welcome. Through this project we want to give every student an opportunity to learn, to enjoy reading, and to create new knowledge and understanding by the use of a library.
