The Librarian in our Zelaya Library in Kampala, Uganda, not only manages the day to day operation of the library, but also helps students find books, recommended by Uganda's Ministry of Education, that will enhance their understanding of what was covered in the classroom.
Introducing the Zelaya Library-- the first library in a municipality containing at least 500,000 people. It is located in the slums of Kampala and contains all the government-recommended books for primary and secondary school students. Funded by Jay Zelaya, ACN worked closely with both Jay and Dennis Ssettaala, the Director of SDKF (who is managing the Zelaya Library) to complete construction, purchase books, and develop plans and strategies for its operation.
