We take pleasure in sharing impact assessment results of three public library youth development services funded by EIFL’s Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP).

East Kazakhstan Oblast Pushkin Library in Kazakhstan helped 55 young people find work, develop small businesses or improve their jobs

Masiphumelele Public Library in South Africa built ICT skills of vulnerable youth living in an impoverished community, connecting them to jobs and opportunities for further study.

National Library of Uganda, with Lira and Masindi public libraries used mobile phones to alert unemployed youth to life-changing career opportunities.

These services are among 14 innovative public library services funded by EIFL-PLIP in November 2011, focused on four vital community development areas: youth development, economic wellbeing, health and agriculture.
