Projects Library

Improving literacy and well being among the children of Tororo is one of our most important priorities, and since 2010 we have supported a community library, which was founded by our Ugandan partners, Tocida. We have provided books and funding to support the librarian and his assistant,  and as a result local people now have access to learning materials and a place to study.  Tocida gives us regular updates on the library,  and earlier this year they told us that there are now over 1,000 people registered to use their library, an incredible achievment over a short space of time.  These children and young people have been given an opportunity to study outside school, and there has been a noticable improvement in exam results.
