We are Building!

Help Youth Rising Build a Modern Library and Skills Center.

Books on Bikes

Youth Rising’s Books on Bikes is a library-on-wheels community outreach and literacy project that intends to improve literacy levels in communities by offering educational resources to children right at their door.

One of the bikes we use at Youth Rising International for the Books on Bikes program. In the image the biker is getting ready to carry books to a school.

How it Works

Books on Bikes partners with schools to deliver learning materials to learners. Before commencement, every school MUST sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Youth Rising. 

01. Registration

On signing the agreement, the school will submit names of the students to our office for registration in our Library System. 

02. Receiving Books

All learners receive a unique identification number and start receiving one book per week. 

03. Returning Books

Learners must return books and on time to avoid disruptions in supply.
