Jane's statement on behalf of Lubuto for the National Stakeholders Symposium on the Zambia Library
Meyers, Jane, April 29, 2015. Jane's statement on behalf of Lubuto for the National Stakeholders Symposium on the Zambia Library and Information Bill and Policy Documents. In response to this speech, Mr. Mark Chona remarked that: "You rightly stress the real challenge for the future which is in the 70% of the population, most who are of out-of-school children, squeezed out of educational process so early in life without alternative means of access to knowledge, information and skills for enhancement in their quality of life. There will always be more children out of school than those in school who will need Lubuto type libraries. This is a time bomb! Lubuto is a long term strategic partner in Zambia's social and economic history and will also be a determinant in the peace, stability security and development of the country."
