Welcome to the Tanzanian Digital Library Initiative!

Founded in 2014 by the PeerCorps Trust Fund, the Tanzanian Digital Library Initiative (TDLI) assembles and deploys digital library systems suitable for limited-resource settings.

These systems are designed to function without Internet access and can be customized to function during power outages. They contain thousands of books in digital formats and countless hours of recorded lectures on academic and vocational subjects.

These libraries have a wide range of uses which include: facilitating classroom instruction, enhancing the delivery of hands-on learning and improving basic literacy.

TDLI libraries are designed to serve entire communities. They can thus be considered an important instrument advancing the Sustainable Development Goals by making educational tools more widely accessible.

This site is intended to showcase the TDLI, and serve as an official portal for tracking its development.
