Joska, Kenya

The MASH foundation  library and resource centre seeks to help children to develop early literacy skills, as well as Increasing their vocabulary and comprehension skills. Over the years children that read books at the centre for pleasure perform better in school.

MASH Foundation resource centre is the only community library in a radius of 50 kilometers in Joska and was opened on the 12th April 2016.

Due to limited resources and infrastructure, most schools in the Joska region have no libraries.

The community library also offers children and the community free access to art classes and mentorship.
