Books winged their way to Uganda via Pelican Post

Our nursery schools have just benefited from a delivery of picture books that were donated by kids from the Blackheath Bluecoat Church of England School in London – the school Rio Ferdinand attended!

Edirisa UK has partnered with Pelican Post – a charity that allows people to make a direct contribution to stimulating a culture of reading in an African school by sending books. Books educate and inspire young minds, but throughout schools in Africa, books are in critical short supply. In particular, picture books and early learning story books are unheard of in many schools. The books are all in English but are culturally appropriate for African children.

The nursery children have received beautifully illustrated story books like – ”We’re going on a Lion Hunt”, “Mama Panye’s Pancakes”, “Handa’s Surprise”.
