Challenge

Uganda has the fastest growing refugee population in Africa. When families are forcibly removed from their homes, education suffers. An educated child has a much greater opportunity to rise out of poverty and build a better life.

Solution

This library will give access to books and learning materials. It will also support the literacy programs at Hope of Children and Women.
