  • Reading & Libraries

    In Uganda, three out of 4 children in 3rd grade cannot read and comprehend, this number only reduces a little bit as a few continue to upper classes. This is partly why only 3 of every 10 children who start P.1 sit for their Primary Leaving Examinations. In a country where, 52% of the population is children below 15, and mostly in primary school, this is a big challenge and an actual threat to national security and development.

     

    We can not let this nightmare continue. It is our responsibility to secure our future and the future of generations to come, by giving these children an opportunity to fall in love with books, so they can LEARN to READ and be able to READ to LEARN.

    Apply for a Library

    enjuba in partnership with African Library Project will be donating books to school libraries and community libraries. You can apply here to benefit from this opportunity.

     

    Deadline 15th June

  • Reading Initiatives

    Reading Days

    You too can make a difference.

    In the same spirit of supporting children to read, and have access to beautiful books, enjuba has embarked on conducting reading days in disadvantaged schools across the country.

     

    Through this initiative, we are giving everyone an opportunity to participate in gifting children in these places with books and or coming along to read with them. Each book is just 10,000 shillings.

     

    We have so far done this in Kaabong, Luuka, Masindi, Pakwach, Gulu, Lira, Bulissa, Nebbi, Ntungamo and the refugee schools in Kyaka II, Kiryandongo and Kyangwali.

     

    To find out how to participate, email us at spellingbee@enjuba.com

    Reading Camp

    enjuba Offices in Bukoto

    In the effort to create a reading culture and support parents with this, we have created a Reading Space in Bukoto, to enable children ages 3-13 to come in and enjoy reading with others.

     

    This is also an opportunity for children from different schools to interact and make friendships that will last. Read about our last Reading Camp here

    National DEAR Day

    Happens in Schools

    In an effort to promote a reading culture and love of learning on a national scale in Uganda, enjuba, in collaboration with Peace Corps, Uganda and the Ministry of Education has come together to designate a specific day and time, where everyone in schools, communities, and organizations across Uganda drop everything to read. This is March 15th at 11 am every year.

     

    Many schools have gone ahead to create DEARTime on their school timetables making reading a weekly activity for every child in their school. Email us to learn more
