Accomplishments of Good Steward

                             and Its Predecessor Project.....So Far

 The West Nile Libraries Association and Member Libraries.

                   

      Seventeen major Community Libraries (Adjumani, Arua Children’s Library, Erussi, Koboko, Logiri, Maracha, Moyo, Nebbi, Okollo, Pakwach, Parambo, Rhino Camp, Omugo, Panyimur, Yumbe, Wadelai and Zombo) have been built and several more are in progress.  These, together with several existing libraries that we are actively supporting in Arua, Moyo and Paidha will serve districts with over 3 million people. 

 

      We are also working with these and other libraries on mobile library projects that will significantly enhance their ability to serve more users.  These are wooden or metal boxes (capable of carrying 30-60 books) that will fit on the back of a motorcycle.

 Children in Uganda are benefiting from Books and Libraries.
