The Bookmobile for Nomads
"The Camel Mobile Library was set up by the government-owned Kenya National Library Service to improve literacy rates in the north-east. The people whom we serve lead a nomadic life. They are here today but tomorrow they might be gone. A static library would be of no use to nomads and so instead we follow them, wherever they go.
"We start early in the morning and work Monday to Thursday. Each box contains 200 books. One camel carries two boxes of books. Another carries the tent and the third one carries our things. We have nine camels - three caravans."
