We are pleased to announce that Susan Browne has joined the Trustee Board of Omushana. Susan has been a great supporter of the charity since first hearing about our work in 2012. Following a trip to Uganda in November 2018 she finally got to see the projects first hand and leapt at the opportunity to become a Trustee. We are really excited to have her on board.
Thanks to some wonderful support we were able to purchase 54 FUN reading books to present to our 3 Reading Champions so that they have some lovely new books to read to children and inspire them during the year to come. The books will be taken out to Uganda in February - watch out for lots of smiles on faces coming soon!
Our amazing Reading Champions are:
Caroline at Buhoma Community Library,
Speria at Ruhija Community Library and
Ben at the Rubuguli Community Library (run by our partners at Footsteps).
The average price for a book is £5 (to buy and transport).
Please donate £5 through this website - just leave a message to let us know which book you are funding.
We will put a dedication in the front stating that the book was donated by you (if you have a personal message please let us know) and we will send you pictures of the book and our fun with books project in action early next year!
