(15 July 2015) A humble donkey library bringing books to small children in Ethiopia is set to be a casualty of Australia’s $11.3 billion overall cuts to foreign aid.
The mobile library on the outskirts of is Addis Ababa is part of an Australian-funded Plan International child development project helping 1,572 children.
The donkeys are all decorated in colourful pompoms and embroidered blankets and they open up the sides of the cart. Inside there are books written in the local dialect.
