Dear Michael Cronhelm

I am very happy the way you contributed and raised a fund for the establishment of this library in Daasanach land.I benefited form this library while schooling my fourth form.I read many high school books which are available by then,It later improved my grade during my final National examination and I got mean grade of B-,which can automatically take me to university. According to my knowledge with Michael Cronhelm Foundation Trust library nothing imposible in Daasanach land because of the avaialblity of all the crucial and necessary books in it.Both the primary and high school students are very grateful for you benefactors.
The library avaialblity also imprve the pre-unit and Nursery education. Because they provide the teachers, they also provide the food (school feeding programme) and now as the larger community they are very happy about it.
Then in future in my university education I will do a degree in Geology because it relate to the situation of my area especially archaeological history of Illeret.

Michael Cronhelm Library is source of education in our small village of Illeret because of not enough teacher and the library is the only institution that provide us with education.In our nearest primary school our pupls are taught by unskilled teachers so they spend most of their time revising because they cant understand the unskilled teachers well.
Michael Cronhelm library also acts as a High School in our area.The High School has not any teachers so the library has helped us with a lot of books which act as our teachers.
The library has also helped the community at large because in the past more people became idol in that they engaged in some activites which are not healthy to our community like stealing, grapping, kidnapping and other things that are not helpful to the community and to our surprise we can now see that most people spend their time in the library reading novels and other story books, thus those acts which are disturbing people in the past stopped at once.In general Michael Cronhelm Memorial Library has help our students,our teachers and the community at large in many good ways.

In my class English and Mathematics are my best subject.
Surelly this library help me as individual.When I was in primary it encouraged me to learn new things .When I was standard eight I always come here during my free time.I read more revision books and stories books and it gives me more effort to pass my final exams and get good marks.The library encourage more of our students in terms of education because it have more primary books they read and learn many new things from this library .We are lacky and we said thanks to the owners of the library to help us.

How MCFT has benefited me as an individual.Since the inception of the library in Illeret I have found the best place to get access to books I usually admire or interested to read but do not get them easily.I have an adequate time to read.Through reading of various kinds of books in MCFT library I have expanded my understanding of many phenomenoms around the world.
I have good chance to interact with many intelect around the world through reading of many kinds of books written by various authors.
I have the right resources to teach my learners which are otherwise difficult to acess anywhere in Illeret.
MCFT has inspired me to have time schedule for my studies.
Everytime I read a new book I learn a new thing therefore since the inception of MCFT library everyday is a day to learn a new aspect of life and phenomenoms of the world.
MCFT is the best place I can do my research and get findings of many answers to questions not known to me with little understanding
MCFT has inspired me to teach others that is why I am teaching voluntarily

Our children get education and thus they get knowledge on their own.Sedhet says she has three children who are in Nursery School.She also said that her children help her by teaching them words like A,B,C,D

To the benefactors
Thank you very much all the benefactors by building the library.And I am also very happy about the way you equipped the library with a very beautiful pictures which always attract me.
We are happy and great thankful to you.I was just thought that a library is a building that we are going to read only some story books for lower primary whe I hear there s a library in Ileret.But it is a very big helpful to us as we as a students.Here in Ileret Primary we don’t have such books which contain many things but we are lucky to found it in this library..This library is very helpful to us because when we are going to sit our examiniations, we are going to make more practise in order to pass in our exams.
In fact there is alos some books in this library which is explain more than what our teachers always explain to us.
This is also give me an idea to know how benefit of library is and also I want to be a game warden when I grown up and I will make a library to a certain school because it is very helpful to pupils.
Thanksful again you are a great man because what you done here in our community.I don’t now what I say about you because we are so happy and we will remember you because you changed us.
