Children bring their brothers and sisters via piggy back !
Katwe is the location of the Kids Read 3rd Little Library. Donated by Martin Smart of Utah, it is the Gorilla Library. The rains let up long enough for our team of helpers to premiere this valuable library to some very excited children. As per our routine, each child got a fruity drink and a piece of cake ~
Children showing off their new books ! Much joy was expressed.
On June 27, 2020 Kids Read delivered 101 bags filled with maise, beans and rice to our children in their first gift of food to the children. Feeding the minds and tummies is a goal for us at Kids Read.
Dedicating a library is a time for gratitude and a dedicatory prayer is offered by one of the children named FIK in the red hat. They bow heads and children momentarily go silent as FIK prays and they all give thanks for this gift.
