My name is Erick Meikoki, an international student from Kajiado, Kenya. I look forward to using funds solicited from this source and from the Davis Peace Project to build a library for the pupils at Goshen Springs, an elementary school located in Impiron, Kajiado. According to the Goshen Springs website, I had already thought out several proposed projects for Goshen Springs, aimed at making the learning experience of pupils more wholesome and diversified. I had a board game club, a computer laboratory, a soccer game club and a library. My parents and I are still drawing out the blue prints outlining the other projects, but as for now, we decided to go with the library project at first.

There are a few reasons for this. First, the need to improve our pupils’ reading skills and expose them to a wider variety of reading materials is essential and seems more pressing than the other projects. English is a compulsory class for all pupils in Kenyan Elementary schools. Having a well equipped library will complement their class material and also solve the niche of lack of stationery that the pupils have raised quite frequently over time. We consider it very important to build the library early and foremost because nurturing the kids’ reading abilities and increasing their vocabulary at a tender age will definitely make them better communicators and writers and even allow them to explore other genres such as poetry and drama. Moreover, the library project is the most cost intensive and my parents and I would be ecstatic if we were to receive aid implementing the project.
