    Making a creative corner in the Nakivale Library

    Day 33

    Fun for everyone!

    The Nakivale library is a relatively new addition to the settlement. Because reading is some important to youth development the library is always looking for new ways to bring young people in. Cue the creative corner!

    Our team on the ground wanted to help the library accomplish their dream of the creative corner so we got right to work! Lego sets, puzzles, arts & crafts, and educational games all now fill the creative corner! These are perfect for getting children to come spend time in the library expanding their minds and being around for storytelling hours. Through these sessions, children share their feelings, thoughts and learn social behaviors that help build their reading habits.

    “These materials are going to be of great impact to our library, we shall have more children coming to read and this will also help advertise the library to the community, we have more children coming to the library which also makes our work more interesting.” Said Saidi the library associate.

    “Thanks, teacher, for these playing materials, I promise to come to the library every day to use them and read books. “said Bahati one of the library users.

    Incredible work team! Thanks for looking out for the next generation’s education!
