    Hello, Greetings from Uganda.
    It's Esther and Janet lovely twins that started up an organization after being touched by lives of 3 children we met without assistance to go to school. On following up these children, we discovered that two of them were orphans and were living with their grandmother.

    Having seen the suffering and appealing situation of the children, we dedicated our efforts towards children of similar situations. We tried to pay school fees for the first 3 children but as the number gradually increased to 8 and later 33 children, it became expensive to pay school fees for them all.
    And with that, we decided to start a Children's Community Library at our home to be able to build a future modal learning center for children who can't afford going to School.

    The organization has blended it's activities that include a library with children's books, mentorship services for the children, proving health care services for these children as well as other basic needs including cloths and children's entertainment to enable them appreciate life.

    We will be delighted to receive travellers that would love to engage and teach the children at the library.

    The organization engages in many activities that will keep the volunteers much occupied like reading story books to the children, teaching, aiding in reading and writing, helping in the gardens, doing home visits for children that can't reach the library to read and learn, teaching children life skills, engaging children in activities like sports, music and drama.

    We would also like the travellers to help in fundraising for a community library building, a school where the children can study from and a home where they can find proper and safe shelter.
