Great Minds Library

Majority of public schools in Nigeria operates with only a handful of books. Growing up back home, Mrs. Emordi (founder of Great Minds Library Initiative) had intense yearning to read, but could only find a few books. She read every piece of paper she could find. Books are essential commodities that only very few privileged Nigerian families could afford. Without books, teachers are only able to teach through memories and students learn by memorization. Without literacy, there is incredible loss of potentials in the growing Nigeria democracy. Recognizing the need, Mrs. Emordi created Great Minds Library as a Non-profit organization geared toward Literacy . Great Minds Library is registered with the state of Texas.
