Usevya Youth Centre & Environmental Library - Katavi

Nomad Trust partnered with Winters Rotary Club, The Besom Charity and Professors from UC Davis are building a youth center in Usevya, just outside Katavi National Park.  The youth center will provide a greatly needed educational and recreational outlet for the youth of the community.  

As part of this amazing initiative, Nomad Trust is sponsoring a small environmental library in the Youth centre.  The buildings are coming along nicely.

 

 

All the furniture for it is made and ready to move in once the building is finished and we are working on sourcing solar power for the center in order to run a projector and lights.

 

I will be running, on behalf of Nomad Trust, the Kilimanjaro half marathon in Feb 2012 to raise funds for the solar system.  To donate to this cause please clink of the following link:

A number of companies have donated books and environmental material for the library already:  Our special thanks goes out to: The BBC for their wildlife magazines, Book Aid, Cabrini College and Cabrini College Philosophy Club.
