open up the world through books in the Lugazi, Uganda community.
We are fundraising towards exciting plans for the Lugazi Community Library. First, we are building a larger, more centralized library to provide better access to more readers. After seeing the success of our current space, town leadership in Lugazi donated a prime piece of land for us to establish a bigger, better library. Our current library has been functioning out of a rented space attached to our workshop, but the new establishment will be a stand-alone building in the heart of Lugazi, easily accessible to everyone.
To expand our reach even further, we are creating "mini-libraries" in the 32 schools in Lugazi. After seeing the surprising lack of books in schools, we wanted to do something to change it. Each mini-library will consist of a bookshelf with a variety of books for students to read. Our librarian, Nixon, will deliver a new set of books by motorcycle (called a "boda") regularly. The "book boda" will be used to exchange books between schools, opening new worlds to Lugazi students.
