Mr. Majembe has been visiting the LCRC since 2016 when he first attended a workshop about the value of reading which was hosted by our founder, Dr. Thurmaier. Fast forward to 2022, Mr. Majembe ran into Dr. Thurmaier at the Library and shared all of the progress that he has made on his farm thanks to the agricultural books TDS has provided in the LCRC. Dr. Thurmaier recommended that he share his new best practices with his neighbors, friends and family!
This week, Moses, the LCRC Librarian, was invited to speak with Mr. Majembe’s microfinance group. He provided them with a list of the current agricultural books that are already in the library and also took note of the topics that the farmers would like to learn more about. The group shared ideas, new approaches to farming and discussed how the books in the library can continue to improve their farming practices.
This is a great example of how building a reading culture can uplift a community! We are excited to see what the group of farmers can now achieve by working together.
