Do you remember the first story book you ever read? The Buguri Children’s Library is an open, friendly space where we have, for the past three years, introduced children of wastepickers to story books, and the world of reading.The power of a small room filled with books can’t be easily measured. Children develop a relationship with books of respect but also intimacy, in a safe space where they are encourage to explore, experiment, and express.
