Roof work is almost complete!

Thanks to a generous donation from Highpoint Fellowship of Cedar Park, roof work on the library in Uganda has restarted. This last phase of roof construction should be complete within the week. This work is helping some workers earn some badly needed income during this difficult economic crisis due to the pandemic.

We have begun receiving book donations! A book bin has been set up in the front lobby at Highpoint, but many others are choosing to purchase books through Amazon from our book wish list. We’re very excited to begin processing these books and boxing them up for shipment to Uganda.

Please donate, either books or funds, to help with the creation of this library. The next phase of construction will involve installing doors and windows. Thanks for your help!

Sponsoring a teen’s education

Over the past week, we have worked on finding educational sponsors for Samuel, a student who wanted to attend secondary school but whose grandmother could not afford tuition. Two librarian friends quickly offered to sponsor his education for the year!

Samuel started school today, accompanied by his grandmother. Together we’re making a difference in the lives of children. There are more children who need sponsors for their education, so if you’re interested, please contact us.

The church Highpoint Fellowship in Cedar Park has agreed to help us by funding some of the cost of construction of the center, helping with the acquisition and processing of books, and helping with other aspects of the work. This project is not religious in nature, but it does bring us some relief to know that we will have help in completing the work.

Thank you for your generous support! – DC
