Trevor from


Our first "Reader Leader' is Trevor. 

The first Little Library was installed in Kabalagala on August. 4, 2019.  After only 2 weeks Trevor had read all 150 books that we had placed in it ! 3 months later we have 3 ! Isma from Katwe, and Shakul from Kibuli.   We hope to create reading groups for children to share what they learned from the books they chose to read with our Reader Leaders showing the way.   Watch for other "Reader Leaders" from our upcoming new libraries. 

Children are desperate to learn ! They have a natural thirst for knowledge.  Here 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

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 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 and some early tutorials and work books. We purchase books from local publishers and use talent there to build our libraries and paint them.

Education is not free in Uganda. Every class for every child must be paid for. Our mission is to provide books to the under-served children around Kampala, Uganda so they can be inspired to learn, grow and experience a world to which they might not otherwise be exposed. We want to build upon their dreams: to help them reach for a better future for themselves and their community. 

"A book is the most effective weapon against intolerance and ignorance."
