Centre of Knowledge

Baleka Mbete Centre of Knowledge (“Centre of Knowledge”) is a fully fledged library that will collect, store and avail all material collected by the Founder over time to the aspirant writers. The library will ensure that it updates and adds to its collection the latest reading materials in order to promote the culture of reading. It will develop scholars in the field of reading and writing in partnership with the Centre of Writing and other institutions. The Foundation comes at a time when the culture of reading is on a collision cause with fast technological developments. Many hours of either computer staring or TV watching time are a reality of more and more young people. Technology is shifting our reality closer to the often mentioned 4th Industrial Revolution. This however must not confuse us on the fact that reading and writing will continue to be our preferred mode of acquiring and disseminating information and knowledge for a long time to come.
