Voyager Container Library

Our first Voyager Container Library

11th March 2020 | Media

Last year, books arrived in the community of Gasave in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, in our very first Voyager Container Library!

In partnership with Ineza Foundation and Gisozi Sector Gasobo District Council we transformed a 40-foot shipping container into a thriving community library filled 5,000 brand new books in English and Kinyarwanda, giving local children and the wider community access to new books!

Check it out here:

We’d like to say a special thank you to players of People’s Postcode Lottery for supporting this project and making our first Voyager Container Library possible!
