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.
March 23, 2023 – The container arrived today. Over 10,000 books were delivered to 23 schools. Thankfully, the team in Texas put the name on each box of the receiving school, using different colored labels. The 230 boxes were delivered in four towns. Many thanks to those who helped unload. Special thanks to Herbert Segujja for simply taking charge of the entire process and working 12 hours straight. He gave directions to all, but probably moved more boxes than anyone. Also, thanks to Tony, my boda driver, for delivering boxes to various schools and taking all the boxes for Kenya to storage. Extra special thanks to the Texas team and our donors that make this possible! We also appreciate our awesome customs agent, John Kisitu!
May 19, 2023 – What a great group of Dell volunteers from CFS2T Services. Despite problems with our printer, they kept at it with smiles on their faces and completed all 21 boxes we needed processed. Special thanks to Randy Maynard for bringing his group out today. Pictured standing are Baldemar, Sabra, Christina, Julian, Mary, Randy, Harmonie and Mark. Seated are Amber and Shawn. Read more.
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.
