Rose sits with Effie in the Laini Saba Community library and listens to her read. Effie stumbles through the words and Rose helps her sound them out when she gets stuck. It’s a simple thing but it makes the world of difference to Effie. She gets frustrated when she can’t read the words, without Rose sitting with her, she would have given up by now.
Staff from our Community Library first met Vincent hanging around on a large playground just round the corner from the library in Kibera. Vincent would be playing with friends or collecting recyclable items to sell. Our staff took time to say hi and get to know him and invited him to the library. Soon Vincent became a regular visitor to the library, exploring the different storybooks or books about science and nature.
