The purpose of Libraries of Love is to promote literacy in Africa by partnering with Africans to create libraries in individual schools, provide financial support to assist in the educational development of individuals, and address humanitarian needs in Africa.
Helping create a reading culture in Uganda and Kenya.
Jan. 12, 2023 -Jim Matthews, board member responsible for book shipment, reports: “The books have started their journey to Uganda at about noon today.” That means they are just a day behind Executive Director Trudy Marshall, who flew to Uganda yesterday. Her trip will be more than 24 hours. The books will go by sea and take about 2 months. We’ll keep you posted
One of Libraries of Love’s 49 beautiful school libraries! We believe the African child deserves libraries equal to American young people. There are 43 school libraries in Uganda and 6 in Kenya. In addition, we have 3 prison libraries in Uganda.
Students crowd the library and hold their books high to show what they are reading.
Many thanks to supporters Lynne and Anne Dobson for their firm faith in our mission and for funding this wonderful video showing Libraries of Love’s work in Uganda. The video was produced by Micah DeKorne, Co-Founder + Creative Director | DESIGNED4.
