The school library had no current books and needed renovation
With the support of volunteers at Kawe who committed their time and mobilized resources, the library got renovated and the girls of the school were gifted with a functional and beautiful library.
We also invested in hiring a Librarian to ensure the smooth running of the library and the on-ground promotion of the reading culture.
We are happy to report that since we opened up the renovated Library in January 2019, an average of 24 students visit the library every day, up from the prior number of about 4 students. Also, the students have utilized at least 100 different books as of the last count.
We have held author engagement sessions with the students where the author has a book reading with the students.
The students are further encouraged with the Library User Award given out by Kawe each school term.
