KLT Styles Up!

Cool New T's

We love our new KidsLibs Trust T-shirts in adult sizes, featuring the trusty Bibliosaur. It cheers us up just to look at them, and will cheer us up even more to give them away to friends and supporters of KidsLibs Trust. Bright colors for a bright idea. Brought to you by funding from UNIASC!

Parents Respond to Little Hands, Big Steps

"My kid is one year. He can turn pages, and look at a book without being told. He makes some funny sounds whenever he sees an animal picture." This comment by Peggy is just one of many KidsLibs Trust has collected from parents engaged in our pioneering early-literacy program for families.

As we continue to expand Little Hands, Big Steps, we are gathering responses from parents and gaurdians to see how the program is working in their homes. (We launched LHBS in 2009, to address the lack of early literacy experiences among preschoolers in Kenya. The program puts a rotating selection of appropriate picture books into the hands of parents and guardians.)

Parents are asked to fill in questionnaires about how often they used the books with their children and what kind of response they see in their youngsters. We are enormously encouraged by their comments! Read on to hear more!

LHBS "Graduates"

Donate!

The existence of KidsLibs Trust and our centres depends on your support! Operating expenses for each centre are modest, yet the impact is enormous.

Here's how you can help:

Donate money on-line & tax free (USA donors ONLY):

The donate button below will take you to on-line donation page of our long-time supporters and friends, the American Friends of Kenya. They have agreed to allow us to take advantage of their on-line donation capacity, something our Kenyan bank account does not support. Thank you, AFK!

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to write "For KidsLibs" in the comment section of the form. And PLEASE NOTE: American Friends of Kenya also has a "library fund" -- this is a DIFFERENT fund, so do not choose this option!!!!

 


Donate books, computers, cameras, art supplies, shillings, etc.:

If you are in Kenya, contact us by e-mail to arrange for donation of equipment and supplies (or cash, of course).

We welcome in-kind donations from outside the country as well, but must ask donors to come up with funds for shipping or some other arrangement to get the materials to Nairobi. This can get complicated! Again, send us an e-mail and we'll work with you.
