2018 Mission Project – Mobile Libraries for Uganda
Raise $32,000 for Three Mobile Libraries in Uganda to Increase Literacy Rates Among Children
Pangea Educational Development will provide an innovate service to bring books closer to homes than ever before: mobile libraries. Mobile libraries will provide families with the monthly recommended number of books for the size of each family. Each month the mobile library will return
to retrieve and deliver new books to each family. Each mobile library will be driven by a mobile librarian who not only delivers the books, but conducts literacy progression assessments each month to understand growth and appropriate book selection going forward.
In a small pilot done in just two months, we have seen a student increase her literacy progression rate nearly half a grade level. Imagine how many gaps we can close if children have access to materials like these throughout the year and in their communities. The impact over time will be tremendous.
We are excited to work with Pangea Education Development again.
This is the same group we worked with on the Piggery Project.
