Help Finance Library in Tajikistan

After living in Dushanbe, Tajikistan with a host family for 7 weeks, this city is a second home to me. However, no home is perfect. I witnessed first-hand limitations of educational opportunities and resources. 

My mission is to provide Tajik  boys and girls a place to read and fall in love with books. There will be books in Tajik, Russian and English, exposing them to global literature and teaching them to think for themselves and expand their world. 


All proceeds will be spent on books and materials for the library, including bookshelves, paint, etc. Working with local youth, I will be building, assembling, and decorating the room. Under the guidance of Sultan Akif, CEO of Library in a Week, I will be embarking on my own journey this summer to better the world, one book and room at a time.
