Inwelle Centre is based on the foundation that the  road does not end when the traveler has tar, coal, and the determination to take the next step.  Our key

Inwelle Library Session

objectives are to (1) provide educational resources to the community, and (2) change the  reading habits of the community.

The Centre is currently structured in a manner that is conducive to private and group meetings, formal job training classes, and computer laboratory  and library.  The  Centre also provides other training such as teaching patrons how to use word  processing programs and perform paper and electronic research.   Our services provide a source for completing class projects, researching  personal interest, or staying in touch with technology.

The Centre also changes the way the community obtains educational resources.   A widespread  problem in this community is the lack of current resources for students and  lecturers.  This problem is  addressed in several ways involving electronic and paper options.  The Centre provides internet access to community patrons. This gives the patrons an opportunity to conduct research online, thus accessing up to date information from different parts of the world.

The Centre also updates its holdings as frequently as possible, thus providing up-to-date material to patrons who prefer  paper research.  The Centre also  employs staff members who keep abreast of publications in different fields.  The staff members keep an open  communication with educational communities in different countries, and note the  resources from which those other communities obtain their information.


PictureThe Centre cultivates the community’s reading habits. We have programs such as Youths Helping Youths (YHY) where we encourage young adults to rise  above their  regular classwork and seek intellectual  superiority. The club is run  by  senior secondary school students between the age of fifteen and  eighteen. The senior  students create reading lists and book clubs for the junior secondary and  elementary school students. The reading lists give students a starting point for  their new interest in reading. The reading lists are divided into different  groups such as grade level reading, suggested improvement reading, educational  reading, etc. The book clubs give the students a forum for discussing their  reaction to the readings. The book clubs are divided into grade levels, tutorial sessions, etc.

Our project can be summarized in three words:  fulfilling a promise.


    1. Access to current educational resources,  computer literacy, word processing access to indigent patrons
    2. On-line and paper research access to students, teachers, and other community members
    3. Conducive reading and meeting rooms, computers and internet  access to indigent patrons.
    4. Library on wheels for the youths in the village and outside our immediate community
    5. The platform  for scholars to visit the Centre and share their knowledge with  the students, teachers and other members of the community.


Youth energy is negated during the elections. The youths are recruited as thugs to  undermine the elections because they are indigent, and idle. We need to harness these youths’ energy positively through re-orientation that  broadens their scope of understanding and aspiration, enables them to shun recruitment as thugs, and improves their ability to interrogate and assess the  democratic process in their localities. Being unemployable, many youths become a recruiting ground for politicians seeking for thugs. The project focuses on  skills acquisition, counseling, and access to information to enable them shun jobs as thugs and increase their self esteem and sense of worth.  We seek to foster evolvement of a strong, vibrant and democratic youths that can enhance the activities of civic society, aid development of skills and standard that enhance democratic decision making within the Youths  Helping Youths club, and participation in political democratic process,  aid enhanced access to knowledge  capital through access to technology and computer literacy and build capacity to  act as checks and balance groups at the grass-roots level.
