    Descripción

    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.
