In the Spring of 2020, Uganda responded aggressively to the threat of the virus, and closed off borders and put the country into lockdown. Despite the economic implications, it successfully halted the spread of Covid. However, a new strain of Covid, has taken hold, and the number of infections are on the rise. There are an estimated 1366 new infections being reported daily. Concerned that the rapid and sustained increase will exhaust the available bed space and oxygen supply in hospitals, the government has taken action and among other things, has closed schools.
With schools closed, children remain at home and help with daily chores. They no longer have an opportunity to stimulate their minds and engage in structured education. Our rural libraries have become an integral place for these young children to access books and art-based programs to further their education until schools reopen.
