Isaro Foundation Concludes 2014 Reading and Writing Week

Kigali, September 20th, 2014

As it has always been since the creation of Isaro Foundation, once a year a reading and writing week takes places with an aim to put an emphasis on the reading and writing campaign the Isaro Foundation has started.

This year, the special week started on Monday September 15th at Kigali Public Library where the Isaro Foundation office is currently located. "We are always motivated by an new way that can instill the culture of reading and writing in Rwandans. We always have creative ways to do this, the best is yet to come" pointed out Mbarushimana Gilbert, director of Books2Rwanda project wihin Isaro Foundation. "Donating a book to each individual, one book per a person, is a new strategy that we just adopted. 3000 books were donated and people are interested in reading them" he concluded.

On Wednesday, members of the foundation visited Lycee Notre Dame de Citeaux. A total of 1000 books were donated, each student was given a book and other books were donated to the library of the school. The next day, 1000 books were donated at Groupe Scolaire de Rukara in the Eastern Province. "This donation we have receives comes in a time we needed the most, our thanks go to these young men and women in the Isaro Foundation" said Father Kayitana, the director of the school.

More books were donated at other schools and a reading and writing competition was closed at Glory Secondary School. Since its beginning, the Isaro Foundation has donated around 60,000 books to more than 84 schools. Reading and writing clubs in different schools were founded. The chief executive officer of Isaro Foundation, who was in Rwanda during the week, pointed out that "we will do everything in our means to make Rwandans read. Isaro Foundation is a young organization, but experienced enough to continue this campaign successfully. Our dream to this point is no longer to just ship more books to Rwanda. We want Rwandans to ship books to the rest of the world."

During the whole week a total of ten thousand books were donated to either schools or the general public. "Our resources are limited, but we can’t give up. Some people and institutions support us financially and members contribute to make all these activities possible" stressed Uzakira Christian, the treasurer of Isaro Foundation Rwanda.
