Angaza Beyond is a humanitarian project run in partnership by Figtree Anglican Church and Nairobi Chapel Kenya. The vision is to provide six fully equipped Shipping Container Libraries to six schools in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

Each container will be fitted with sturdy library shelves, lighting and library equipment and will be stocked with good quality children’s fiction and non-fiction books and teaching resources. These libraries will help enlighten children to a future beyond the slums where they live. Angaza in Swahili means Enlighten which seems fitting for this project. We’re not only providing books but hope for a better future!

We are inviting the Illawarra community to donate good quality new and used, fiction and non-fiction children’s books and a gold coin donation to stock and ship these libraries. If you can donate any other items to stock these shipping containers we would love to hear from you as well!

Books can be donated anytime between 9am and 5pm Sunday to Friday at Figtree Anglican Church, 4 Gibsons Road, Figtree or at Figtree Community Carols, 12th December 2015.
