An all volunteer organization, Libraries of Love has created libraries in

36 schools in Uganda
7 schools in Kenya

and reached an estimated

98,000 students since 2005.

Over 98,000 students have enjoyed reading books from Libraries of Love’s 43 libraries over a 12-year period. Students who attended the first nine schools which received libraries (13,000 students) have moved up to secondary schools, or have graduated from secondary. At these schools, a second “generation” of readers are now borrowing books. That has been one of our goals, younger brothers and sisters having the same access to books as their older siblings. We are thankful. It is a happening. All of our supporters make it happen.
