Anne Frank Peace Library
In partnership with the Davis Projects for Peace and the Sarswati Foundation, AFPN established the Anne Frank Peace Library. The library is in Arupokhari, a remote village of the Gorkha district in Western Nepal, and is connected to the Sarswati Peace School for 250 war affected students. Organizations like the Rotaract/Interact Club of Pashupati-Kathmandu, and the Nepal Mother Foundation have landed support in the project.
The Anne Frank Peace Library serves as a space committed to honoring stories about overcoming challenges, standing strong in the face of oppression, and working for change. For example, the library includes copies of Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl, Martin Luther King's Letter from Birmingham Jail, and Gandhi's The Story of My Experiments with Truth. Currently, the library is equipped with 10 computers, one projector and more than 2000 books. The Anne Frank Peace Library continues to uphold AFPN’s message of hope and inspiration, even after AFPN's project completion in 2012.
