The library’s Internet Access and Training Programme links information and communication technology (ICT) and leadership training for vulnerable, unemployed youth. In just one year (2010/11), the library trained 190 youth (125 women and 65 men). Librarians report that because of their ICT training, some trainees returned to school; some signed up for driving lessons, and others are working in internet cafés or teaching part time to raise money for further study. The library is now a recognized player in local development.

The service was initiated with support from the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) in 2010. This two-page case study is based on impact assessment conducted by the library.
