Our impact

Since its creation in 2007, Libraries Without Borders has impacted the lives of more than 2 million disadvantaged people around the world. Our impact goes even further: we seek to measure the way in which we transform the perspectives of the actors, public and private, with whom we work and make evolve the norms and the regulations of the ecosystems in which we intervene.

Emergency, post-conflit & peace building

With 59 Ideas Box kits implemented in emergency and reconstruction contexts, we are providing more than 850,000 refugees, displaced and vulnerable people with the means to reconnect with the world, gain self-reliance and strengthen children’s education.

We contribute within the United Nations (ECOSOC, INEE) and through an international call to action (L’Urgence de Lire), to change humanitarian action towards better taking into account the intellectual needs and aspirations of vulnerable populations.

Education & cultural diversity

With more than 3,2 million Khan Academy users in French, support provided to more than 200 libraries around the world, more than 100 Numerique Traveler Clubs and 15 Ideas Box kits already adopted by local communities, we fight against inequalities in access to education and cultural diversity around the world.

We campaign for libraries to become epicenters for inequality-reduction and development of people and communities.

Entrepreneurship & social transformation

With more than 5,000 librarians trained on the BSF Campus platform and several dozen organizations supported in their social innovation projects each year, we seek to boost entrepreneurship and innovation in libraries.

We take part in the evolution of the librarian’s profession towards an entrepreneurial approach and the development of the measurement of the economic and social impacts of libraries.
