It does not matter where you are born, stay or your social and economic status, books always bring excitement to children in proportions that are simply heart warming. They are always eager to learn something new, read an intersting story and even those who are younger and can't even hold the book in the right way will always have a smile on their face openning page after page to enjoy the pictures and illustrations.
In December, we took into villages around Uganda and slums in Kampala - the Capital to give books to children as a christmas present. The excitmenet we saw in the children is more than we expected. Normally children would be more excited about candy or toys or other things but wherever our team went, the excitment for books was overwheleming.
Becasue of your help, just in December alone we were able to get out over 3,000 books to children in Western Uganda, Southwestern Uganda, in one of the biggest refugee camps there, eastern Uganda and Northern parts of Uganda.
