“As soon as the library opens, the students run to get a seat.” For librarian Nancy Phiri, the result of her work is demonstrated by the enthusiasm of learners. The regional library in South Malawi is a great asset to secondary school pupils and students, who use the reference materials for courses.

The South Malawi Regional Library is supported by Book Aid International, a UK-based non-governmental organisation that sends donated books to libraries in developing countries, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. UIL recently sent a large consignment, comprising 450 kg of books and reports on adult education, literacy and non-formal basic education, to Book Aid International.

UIL is committed to finding new ways to share its publications on lifelong learning, particularly in regions with the greatest need. If your organisation is interested in receiving and disseminating UIL publications, please contact uil-pub(at)unesco.org
