Fostering the emergence of young leaders

Together with Unicef, BSF deploys the UpShift social entrepreneurship program in several sub-Saharan African countries, including Burundi, Uganda, and Benin. By providing them with four Ideas Cubes and 3,000 Kajou cards, we are accompanying nearly 50,000 adolescents and young adults aged 18 to 25 to give them the means to acquire professional skills in various areas: agriculture, crafts, etc. Facilitators set up training workshops so that young people can identify the challenges in their communities and brainstorm sustainable and innovative solutions to the problems they face.

Donation Mission

Since 2007, Libraries Without Borders has collected books from institutions, editors, and individuals in France. Organized and referenced by the team and by volunteers at our collection center at Épône, the books sustain our projects and libraries all around the world, from refugee camps in Burundi to rural areas in France. In 13 years, we have sent 380,000 books to 30 countries. 

More than 30,000 books are referenced in our online catalogue, readily available to libraries and partner associations of LWB. Others are resold as second-hand goods or resold during monthly farmer’s markets  which help finance our actions. 

Since 2013, LWB has helped create several in Benin thanks to books and materials selected and sent by our team, supported by Paris Nanterre University.
