Children’s Story Books - Appeal for Uganda: During lockdown DDE has been supporting a project in Uganda training teachers to teach reading using phonics. We are now appealing for assistance to provide story books for the children so that they can begin to enjoy reading. There are two ways you could help either with a donation to buy books from a supplier in Uganda or by donating suitable books which will be shipped to Uganda.
