FAVL East Africa director Kate Parry recently celebrated her upcoming retirement from teaching at Hunter College CUNY in New York with a party-fundraiser for Kitengesa Community Library. Thanks to all the donors and attendees!
Kate will be going to Uganda next month, via England, and when she gets to Kitengesa she’ll be organizing the next Women’s Health Camp. They library just held one for teenagers, and we hope to have a report on that soon.
Posted back in 2018, here is a short audio podcast feature with Kate Parry and about Kitengesa, with Pat Duffy from the United Nations hosting. The blurb for the podcast is: “We talk to some of the people involved in two small-scale projects supported by the UN, which have helped transform their communities, in rural Uganda, and South Sudan.” Listening is a great way to learn about Kitengesa library. The video features music from the Kitengesa Library band… see photo at right!
