Wondo Genet Reading Room is the only library in the farming community of 15,000 in Ethiopia's southern province. It serves three primary schools. With Atlantic Provinces Library Association's support, this library is improving access to information by building their collection of local language and English reading materials, providing professional support for teachers using the library, and helping train local people in library management skills.

CODE works with local organizations throughout the developing world to empower children to learn. They deliver an essential, sustainable development solution that endures. CODE programs support libraries and teacher training as well as national and local book publishing in more than 17 languages in Africa and the Caribbean. “If you can read and write, you can learn to do, and be, anything.”
