The roofing is now complete on the library in Uganda! Rain interfered and slowed down some of the work, plus construction crews dealt with bouts of malaria and restrictions due to the pandemic. But workers persevered and completed construction last week. The next phase of construction involves installing doors and windows.
One of our goals is to help children stay in school when their families cannot afford to tuition, uniforms, and supplies. While students are not in school at the moment due to the pandemic, they will eventually return to school. Many families have been earning little to no income during the lockdown, so many children will not be able to return to school. If you are interested in sponsoring a child’s education, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. School is not free for children in Uganda. Primary school generally costs less than secondary school, and tuition and other costs usually come to less than $600 per year. Those costs are paid per quarter, not all at once.
Donations in general are being directed toward construction, so if you’d like to sponsor a child’s education, please make a note with the donation. Online donations can be made thru PayPal, but you can also send a check to: Libraries for the World, PO Box 1331, Round Rock TX 78680.
