The Busesa Community has been impacted greatly by Library. From humble beginnings in a very small house the library now provides:
– Access to learning resources such as books and computer based learning programs.
– Story- telling and group reading sessions.
– Room for personal study
The library was recently moved into a new and bigger facility thus providing more room for reading and learning. The new facility is equipped with books, shelves, tables and chairs, computers and a solar system to power computers and lighting to enable reading at night. Initially, the library would be open from 8.00a.m to 5.00p.m. Now night reading is the latest addition. Night reading allows especially the high school students to do home work afterhours which their urban colleagues take for granted.
The new facility provides more space but it is not yet complete. There is need to complete the upper floor and external wall finishes, more furnishing is needed such as tables, chairs, shelves and computers, digital learning resources are also needed such as educational DVDS, a digital screen and projector to enhance learning. The plan is to use the second floor space for seminars and other educational activities for the community.

Hope children’s clinic was started to provide affordable comprehensive health care to the children of Busesa and surrounding areas. It is the first of it is kind in the area.
Our mission is to eventually make sure that every child in the community has access to at least a well visit once a year free charge. We intend to go to those that cannot come to the clinic. Acute care services are provided at a flat fee (Medications included) with a free follow up visit for those that need to be rechecked .
