Help us get reading books, reference books and toys for the Community Resource Centre

Nakyerongosa village started a community resource centre after observing the need for such a facility in the area. The idea came about as a result of support from a retired community trainer who donated a few of his books because he wanted to give something back to the community. COMASA officials sensitised schools and community members about the programmes at the Centre. Since then people have realised the importance of the resource centre as a source of knowledge and it is making a world of difference for children whose schools are too poor to afford books.

Some of the initial programmes at the centre are storytelling for children and sensitisation on hygiene, HIV/AIDS, water and sanitation topics.

Currently, there are few reading materials whereas there is a high demand for literacy materials from both the school children and community members. We are therefore appealing to individuals and organisations that are in a position to assist the Community Resource Centre to do so. We will be very grateful for any reading materials, reference books and toys towards this noble cause.
