AS OF 2017, THE LIBRARY IS FULLY FUNCTIONING.  STAY TUNED FOR UPDATED PICTURES.

Computer Lab/Library

      Omega School’s library has served multiple purposes this past year.  However, 2012 has been set as the year to fully develop the purpose and function of this new building.  Computer desks are being constructed as are additional book shelves.  Plans are currently being made to bring the Internet to Omega School.  Imagine the joyful expression of YOUR Uganda student when he/she sees your smiling face on a computer screen 9,000 miles from where you are sitting.  The Internet will also serve as a learning tool for Omega students as they seek a better way of life by means of a well-rounded education.   More information will be provided regarding this undertaking as a revised bid is returned to the REACH office for consideration.

Library Update

Work continues on the new library

 

 A large container arrived in Jinja on September 20th, 2008.  It came by way of ship, over the Pacific to Kenya, and finally arrived, carrying many essential items to bless the lives of the children at Omega School and the surrounding villages.  Among the many clothes, computers, and even wheel chairs were lots of books to help establish a library on the school grounds. 

 

 

A “Clean Well-Lighted Place” for books

 

Most of the classrooms at Omega School are open air buildings.  This blesses the children with good ventilation in such a warm climate; but unfortunately open air does not offer the same blessing for books.  A more western style building needs to be constructed to properly care for the books, keeping them safe and dry.  Work has begun on the building and soon the children will have their library. 

 

A special thank you goes out to Larry and Mary Carter, and to their friends and family for their efforts in filling the new library and constructing it.  All this, so the Omega kids may come to know what an amazing treasure a library can be.  The children and their families face difficult challenges in Uganda.  There is no limit to the advantages that will emerge from their access to so many books.  If you feel led to contribute to this effort as well, please note, “For the library” on your donation form.
