The African Library Project (ALP) changes lives book by book by starting libraries in rural Africa. Our grassroots approach mobilizes volunteers, young and old, to organize book drives and ship books to partner libraries in Africa. Our method makes a concrete and personal difference for children and adults on both continents.

We work with our African partners to create small sustainable libraries in Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Sierra Leone Uganda and South Africa. Our model provides many benefits for the U.S. too, including greater knowledge of Africa, leadership opportunities for young Americans, and recycling of books. Our model is scalable and, while already making a significant difference, it has the potential to do much more. We have helped develop over 2541 libraries by sending over 2.5 Million books in 13 years!

ALP seeks a volunteer grant writer to help us identify appropriate grants, research those grant opportunities, maintain a grants calendar, draft solicitations and proposals and write reports.

This volunteer will work independently but with support from our Executive Director. The hours are flexible and the position is remote (access to a library that has an online database of grants is important). ALP hopes to submit 5-7 grant proposals per calendar year ranging from small local organizational grants to larger foundation grants.

Your expertise and efforts would be critical to the continued success of ALP’s efforts to increase literacy in Africa; you would be a valued member of a highly dynamic group of volunteers.
