Books are the basic tools of education. This library will enhance the school and educational opportunities offered by Hope of Children and Women. Gender equality is promoted through the book selection, community film screenings, art projects and positive role modeling.
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.
This library will give access to books and learning materials. It will also support the literacy programs at Hope of Children and Women.
