library

Library outside Lusaka, Zambia. The ministry that opened this library is called Chikumbuso, which means "remembrance." The compound they work in was a bar and brothel until 2006, and is now a primary school, community kitchen, housing for runaway and at-risk children, skills training center, and store that sells handbags and other products made from recycled material. Beauty from ashes.
