Books for Basoga
Books for Basoga exists for one reason: to empower children through literacy. Reading this website illustrates our point. Without literacy, we cannot operate a computer or understand a lunch menu.
Books for Basoga began with a small box of books in the Source Library in Jinja, Uganda. Candice Garner had come to Jinja looking for ways of integrating the resources of Americans and Ugandans. With no other lending library in the area, a dream was born.
Candice began to contact learning centers in the U.S. about donating books for the library. Soon U.S. classrooms and churches were collecting books to send to their new friends in Africa.
