EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) is delighted to announce the names of three new grantee libraries in Ghana.
The three public libraries are offering services in the crucial development areas of health and support for vulnerable youth.
The new services are:
The Northern Regional Library in Tamale, which will use the Internet, mobile phones and radio to improve the flow of information between pregnant women and health workers. The library’s aim is to help reduce maternal mortality.
The Ghana Library Board’s Mobile Library Service in Ho Municipality in Volta region. The service will travel to schools in under developed areas in a computer laboratory equipped with laptop and desktop computers and powered by solar panels, so that school children can learn practical ICT skills.
Twifu Praso District Library, which will transform a traditional reading room into a multi-media room where vulnerable youth can improve their chances in life by acquiring ICT, radio broadcast and other media production skills.
The three new services join the Northern Regional Library’s Internet Access and Training Programme (IATP) which EIFL-PLIP funded in 2010. IATP provides leadership and ICT training for vulnerable youth living in Tamale, capital of Northern Ghana, and surrounding rural areas.
