Literacy for All
As Wonderland BookSavers, we naturally love to read. We began as a book club, and we continue as a book club. In fact, our entire mission has always been Inspired by Literature! We choose literature, non-fiction, poetry, mythology, any genre. Then we each read our book, join for discussions, and create a Project inspired by our reading. Would you like to join us? Let’s see what we are reading this month…
A School for My Village by Twesigye Jackson Kaguri
This is an autobiographical account of a Ugandan man who was so moved by the plight of HIV orphans in his community that he became determined to provide free education, shelter and food for this group of abandoned and homeless children.
Told with compassion, humor and honesty, the reader is given insight into the difficulties and aspirations of these young Ugandan children.
Through prayer and persistence, Jackson is gradually able to achieve his goal: one classroom and one grade at a time.
This is a beautiful and important story of generosity, faith and education working together to support and unite children and give them a chance to enhance their own lives, families and communities.
We look forward to partnering with Jackson in his important mission, and plan to send a shipment of our books to his students in Uganda. We hope you will consider helping Jackson as well, you can learn more about his work here: Nyaka School
