onderful news was received today from our St. Kizito Administrator, Chris, in Uganda. He shared that St. Kizito was the beneficiary of a much-needed donation of fifty chairs for the St. Kizito library.
First, let me begin by telling you a little about the St. Kizito library. It is a two-room library that St. Kizito students, as well as members of the nearby community, can use. Students are not permitted to take books home from school; rather they are collected at the end of each day. If a student wishes to study or read, he/she needs to visit the library. Students walk for miles to go to the library to read and study there. A St. Kizito board member, who visited Uganda this past summer, was struck at how quiet the library was – full of students and all were deeply engaged in their studies. He also noted that the library had no monitor to maintain the silence. The fifty chairs will be a welcome sight at the St. Kizito library – making trips to the library not only enjoyable but more comfortable too!
