Our first "Reader Leader' is Trevor. 

After the first Little Library  was installed in Kabalagala on August. 4, 2019  Trevor had read all 150 books placed there in only 2 weeks.  He started the Reader Leader.  We now have three Reader Leaders: Trevor,  Isma from Katwe, and Shakul from Kibuli.    Watch for other "Reader Leaders" to Emerge from CLIP,  (Children Learning Independently Program) our at-home study series. 


Children are desperate to learn ! They have a natural thirst for knowledge.  Above someone created a chalk board on the side of a building  in Katwe, where the children meet each day and try to teach each other.

Our Mission

From June 27 to Aug 29  Kids Read distributed food to 630 chidren and their families to  nourish their bodies as well as their  minds. The equates to 20,800 meals served to at-risk children.

The first KidsRead "Little Library"  premiered on August 4, 2019 with the sole purpose of providing books to the under-served children in Uganda.  They are encouraged to take a book, read it and return it for another book.  There are 150 books or more in each library. They range from picture books for the very young, story books,  some early tutorials and work books. We purchase books from local publishers and use local  artisans to build and paint  our libraries. 

September brings the launch of  CLIP,  our at-home program that delivers educational materials directly to the children!  We  have registered 27 children to receive teaching workbooks  and learning supplies.   Read more about it soon by clicking the CLIP link above.

Free education is limited in Uganda due to the large number of children. Our mission is to provide books to the under-served children around Kampala. We aim to help them learn, grow and experience a world to which they might not otherwise be exposed. We now introduce CLIP (Children Learning Independently Program) which will provide educational workbooks directly to the children. This will help them begin to reach for their potential as good citizens and productive individuals for their communities and them selves.
