In the remote village of Kisoro in Uganda, NC Service-Learning Coalition members reach out to support education and literacy.
NCSLC Board member Thomas Ray and his daughter, Chloe, visited the village of Kisoro. Kisoro lies on the western border of Uganda and Rwanda, where refugees from Rwanda and local villagers struggle to overcome the effects of war and poverty.
Chloe is spending a whole year teaching local children and serving the community. The father-and-daughter team also brought two Kindle libraries, each containing more than 1300 e-books, including books in local languages.
The e-books are specifically reviewed and selected with local children in mind as part of a service project, 1KL (www.1KL.org), founded by another board member of our own, Sam Park.
Sam founded the project to send more than 32,925 e-books to 10 countries as well as numerous schools and communities in the U.S., so children can read and learn.
