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 program. With months we have three Reader Leaders, Trevor, Isma from Katwe, and Shakul from Kibuli. These Reader Leaders are helping create reading groups for children to share what they have learned with others. Watch for other "Reader Leaders" from our upcoming new libraries.
The first KidsRead "Little Library" was 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.
Providing children with books tobuild
future dreams upon through love and imagination !
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.
Isma from Katwe
On June 27, Kids Read began a new program to nourish the bodies as well as the minds of our children. We dispursed 101 bags of food to children in Kabalagala and on July 1, with the help of local people, we did the same in Katwe.
Education is not free in Uganda. Every child's family must pay for their education. . Our mission is to provide books to the under-served children around Kampala, Uganda. We aim to inspire, learn, grow and experience a world to which they might not otherwise be exposed. We want to build upon their dreams, and to help them reach for a better future for themselves and their community.
