Right 2 Education: STF Mobile Library Book List
by HRW Student Task Force, et al, 2011-2012

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.
