Who do Literacy Centres serve?
So far we have set up a literacy centre in rural Matugga Wakiso District to ensure community members can access a library, elementary school, community building activities. Children are given priority at the centre, the library is stocked story books, plus text books to support the school going children.
Library Days at the Centre
Teachers and mentors plus librarians come together and support children in how to use the library, guide them in reading activities, make them love books and where books are kept, read with them along with other exciting learning through games activities. Children can also borrow books and return them on a weekly basis.
The Literacy Centre also gives these rural children computer skills once a week with supervision of the librarian, interested adults are also given the chance over the weekends.
