Camp Ohana Children’s Library to Bolster Importance of Education
Green Cove Springs, FL – Beginning Monday, October 6, Camp Ohana Foundation is launching fundraising efforts to complete a project which it hopes to be a first for Kenya – a children’s library entirely dedicated to serving the kids in a rural village.
In the works for several years, the children’s library project aims to provide increased awareness of the importance of education. Many Westerners downplay the importance of books and education as an essential need in underdeveloped countries like Kenya. Groups of children in Kenyan villages have never even held a book, let alone received the education necessary for them to live prosperous, well-informed lives. Camp Ohana Foundation will soon commence increased efforts to raise money for a children’s library oriented to making literacy a top priority for Kenya.
The non-profit organization continually emphasizes the need for books and literacy to better the lives of Kenyan children. Education allows these kids to better understand the world they live in. It can also help prevent against forming unfounded superstitions and arm kids with the tools needed to protect themselves and family members with healthy practices. Increased literacy also improves the well-being of communities around the world, producing less crime and poverty.
By placing the building blocks of knowledge in their hands, the children’s library will offer free access to books for children at Camp Ohana village. Camp Ohana Foundation representatives state that this is their most important campaign yet. With a proposed location at Camp Ohana Village, surrounded by rural villages in western Kenya, the library will be the first one solely geared towards children in Kenyan history. Previously, the foundation’s children literacy program has been operated out of a dilapidated house with a leaking roof. The organization hopes that donations for the library project can change that. A new facility will foster hope, inspiration, increased literacy, and a better environment for the Camp Ohana cultural experience program.
Camp Ohana Foundation seeks to raise $10,000 to complete the children’s library during the campaign. The program has collected enough books over the years to be housed in the new library; now, all that is needed are funds to complete the project. Operating as a United States public charity and non-profit organization with tax-exempt status, Camp Ohana Foundation encourages donations of all sizes to help reach the projected goal. All donations and gifts are tax deductible.
