Goal 17: 2. Library Policies and Best Practices
Several library organisations operate at international level. Halfway between a humanitarian NGO and a social enterprise,Bibliothèques sans Frontières helps local and national governments diffuse knowledge where it is most needed. In spite of being excellent places for personal growth and collective development, libraries are too often absent where they could have the most impact. BsF works in 23 languages and in 50 countries across the globe on issues such as education, health, employment, citizenship, environment and sustainability, disability, and technology.
The Fondation de Luxembourg, which also enables other Sheltered Foundations to be set up under its aegis, distributes funding from different donors in the following areas: Health and Science, Poverty Reduction and Social Cohesion, Universal Education, Biodiversity and Climate Change. One of the projects of the Fondation de Luxembourg, for instance, has been to acquire a “bibliobus” to combat illiteracy in Cambodia (meeting SDGs 4, 10 and 17).
