Now that Ugandan schools appear to be staying open for the first time in 85 weeks, LEP’s CEO is returning to visit their libraries.

If you would be interested in joining him on this trip, please reply directly to this notice at and we’ll connect you with the team involved with this travel program at LEP. The plan is to visit nine libraries while on the ground for six days, February 14th-19th, with travel days the weekends before and after.

Flights are under $800 from NYC or DC and your additional expenses in Uganda would be roughly $400.
