Supporting the creation of a library at Saaba

In 2019, Suzanne Tasse, a philanthropist active in the Burinabe association Gangr Nooma, supported the library that she had financed at the center of professional development in Saaba, a suburb of Ouagadougou. Bangr Nooma now offers regularly training and awareness workshops for all the surrounding villages around women’s health issues – especially genital mutilation – and infancy. From the diagnosis of needs and expectations of readers, to the selection of documentary resources, to the adoption of training materials for future libraries, our teams have supported the association’s use of this space as a center of quality resources and encounters, which can best respond to the needs of users.

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 sent nearly 1,000 books to Burkina Faso.
