Gumti Libraries. Varanasi.

World Literacy Canada has 60 mobile libraries in villages in and around Varanasi. These mobile libraries are open everyday for the villagers to read books and offers a space to exchange information and improve their education. The posters on the sides of these libraries were torn and tattered and I have just designed new posters to go on them. One of them states an old Chinese proverb in Hindi 'It's better to light a candle than to curse the darkness'.

The more I read about World Literacy Canada work, the more I get interested on it. I live in a country where the need for education and good schools is huge, and the numbers for illiteracy among adults and children are scary. "There is no such a thing as darkness, only the absence of light" (Einstein, I think) :)
