Fabulous Book Donations

Omushana Admin |


Massive thanks for the donations of childrens books for our Community Libraries!

Literally hundreds of books have been donated by our supporters for our Community Libraries in Buhoma, Ruhija, Rubuguri and (coming soon!) Mgahinga – all on the edges of the gorilla forests in SW Uganda.  We’ve been sent books by Wightwick Hall School in Wolverhampton, Condover and The Grange Primary Schools in Shropshire, Newnham School in London, Shrewsbury BookFest, the Field Studies Council and Shrewsbury Unitarian Church – WOW. 

These books will be boxed up and shipped to Africa very soon.
