Ugandan street children learning to read with Yes We Can Read

Cynthia Haddock, Founding Trustee of Amazing Children Uganda, writes: 

"I’m very touched by your generosity in donating 3 Yes we Can Read books to Amazing Children Uganda for me to take to Kampala next week. 

They make a huge difference in the lives of the children, and the students sponsored into school are so proud to write to their sponsors that they are helping their friends learn to read.  

I attach photos for you. The ground you can see is the earth floor of the church where the children who are not in school sleep at night.

Please do forward this message with the photos to the authors Nick and Libby Ainley with our sincere thanks for the donation of 3 books they gave us last year.

It is wonderful to have such support for our work."

Amazing Children Uganda have been using Yes We Can Read for three years. Groups of A level students (former street children who have been educated through the charity) coach the younger street children with Yes We Can Read. Adult volunteers who are illiterate also benefit from the programme.
