The R2E Human Rights Mobile Library…
provides a space and the materials for refugee students to learn about human rights and their right to education!

The Human Rights Mobile Libraries consist of a chest full of learning tools, including e-readers loaded with books and documents, maps, utensils, and other resources and curriculum -- focusing on human rights. Per requests from the refugee students, the libraries will include English learning material. Along with the chests, the mobile libraries will include tables, chairs, and mats to make a comfortable learning environment. The libraries are mobile (two donkeys can carry it all), so they can move to the different schools and classrooms
in the camps.

Human Rights Mobile Libraries will be created in two Darfuri refugee camps in Chad - one in Camp Djabal and the other in Camp Goz Amer, close to the Sudan border.

HRW Student Task Force will...
STF members will research appropriate resources and materials and will be in contact with the refugee students as they explore what the Right to Education means and what the reality is for other youth around the world, where education might actually be a matter of life and death.


Our Plan for the 2011-2012 school year...
1. Determine and create educational materials for the library to be delivered to the camps by I-ACT.

2. Communicate with the refugee students and teachers in the Chad camps online. The mutually enriching relationships that develop allow for limitless impact on both continents.
