Amboseli and Kyalilini Primary School are celebrating good news from the Library for Kids International. On 22nd October 2019, Roy Austin and his team of generous donors mailed books to both institutions. A total of 80 books, all weighing about 104lbs, were sent directly to the institutions costing Library for Kids International about $1,010 in shipment cost.
Of the books mailed by Library for Kids International, Amboseli school is set to increase its stock by about 20 books. So far, the school has received more than 150lbs of books since operations began in August 2019. In addition to mailing books directly to the institutions, the Library For Kids International also sent them funds in September, which enabled the school to further equip their library with textbooks based on the Kenyan Curriculum. The gesture is just the beginning, as depending on their needs and storage space, Library for Kids International has promised to continue supporting Amboseli as they work towards realizing their dreams of having a library.
With regards to Kyalilini Primary school, the Library For Kids International mailed three boxes mostly filled with encyclopedias weighing about 84lbs. The school is located approximately two and a half hours east of Kenya’s capital city and 10 kilometers North of Kitui town. The 60 books from Libraries for Kids International should reach the school by mid-December. Kyalilini primary school has also received some funds that will help cover custom fees and also purchase new textbooks for the students.
On 30th October 2019, Libraries for Kids International mailed three boxes filled with books to Kwa Mboo Primary school. The institution is also located in Kitui county.
While the schools are closed for the holidays in Kenya until January 2020, the students and communities in the region are excited and eager to receive the help from Libraries for Kids International. Churches supporting the schools in Kyalilini have dedicated special prayers for the Library For Kids International as the institution works towards making a difference for children located in rural parts of developing countries.
