Pictured are some of the hundreds of boxes of books that arrived in May in the 2018 shipment of 13,000 books to restock 12 libraries in Uganda and organize 1 new library. An all volunteer organization,
Libraries of Love has created libraries in 36 schools in Uganda and 7 schools in Kenya. We are excited and proud to say that 98,000 students have had access to books in our libraries since the first Library of Love was created at Namirembe Primary School in Kampala in 2005.
Schoolgirls in Maasai land
7 libraries created in Maasai land
In 2017, we provided 7 libraries in Maasai land in Kenya, each very remote. There are paths and cow pastures weaving through Maasai land, but not regular roads. However, the trucking company was able to deliver just as volunteers arrived to assemble the libraries. We provided 4 primary libraries and 3 secondary. Please keep checking our website and on Libraries of Love’s Facebook
page for the latest updates. Stepping out of the box is not always easy, but it has great rewards. Uganda will continue to be our focus, but how exciting to also provide for Maasai young people.
SPECIAL BOOK DONATIONS
We are extremely excited about a list of books created for Libraries of Love by volunteers Jim and Ellen Matthews, almost all with African themes / settings. Many are set in Uganda or Kenya. Can you imagine the big eyes as the students look at these books with familiar faces and places? You can donate books directly from the list on Amazon.
