2020 libraries are a wrap!On June 29, with the help of groups like this one, which included missionary Liz Ingram, we completed our library projects for this year.
On May 5, our shipment arrived safely – all 320 boxes! It took the coordination of several wonderful people, as we were still on lockdown with no cars or other public transport allowed to move. Those who unloaded had to walk to the school.
Then there was the challenge of transporting the books from Kampala to schools in Mukono, Jinja, and Mbale. A HUGE thanks to all the publishing companies, groups, and individuals that donated books!
Restocking is normally done with assistance from volunteers who travel from the U.S. to Uganda, but because of travel restrictions, we had to rely on local help. And, help they did! Thanks to the librarians and sponsored students who stepped up.
Over the years, Executive Director Trudy Marshall has kept a journal of happenings – good and sometimes not so good – during her stays in Uganda and Kenya. Now, those writings have been compiled into a book.
