Magara Community Library

The Magara Community Liberay is an education advancement program of the Nsengiyumva Global Developement Foundation to be based in Magara that aims to provide a space for learning to local youths and help them earn new skills for a brighter future.
The Centre is to provide the local community with a facility where they can go and earn life improving skills, open door to new opportunities, and explore the universe through courses, books, and internet.

The Centre will facilitate students to advance their learning through courses and programmes designed by educational professionals in order to adequately fit needs of students (whether at elementary or secondary or university level) as well as providing students with a research centre where they can carry their academic projects.

The Centre will also provide local business owners in particular with basic entrepreneurship techniques and international business languages skills to help them expand their business networks and/or take their business operations to an international level.

The Centre will be located in a geographical area that does not have such a learning and skills improving facility. On the shores of Lake Tanganyika, from the City of Bujumbura all the way to the City of Rumonge, there is no such a community library facility to cater for hundreds of thousands of youths (students and graduates) that live in between the two cities. 

The Facility with be located in the town of Magara, a main urban centre of Commune Bugarama in Rumonge Province, at 40 Km south from the City of Bujumbura, Commercial Capital of Burundi, and 32 Km north from the City of Rumonge, main City of Rumonge Province.
