Tomorrow is International Day of the Girl!  Sharing the success of our new children's center located at Degale Public Library is the perfect way to celebrate.  

The Mudula community recognized a special place for children books was needed and with its support, WEEMA constructed a separate children's library within the Degale Public Library compound. This library offers a place for girls and boys to learn, to imagine, and to dream. The adorable dreamer in the photo above is one of many girls who love to spend time among books and friends.

WEEMA empowers women and girls by providing equal opportunity and supporting educational programming that promotes gender equality. With opportunity, hard work and imagination little girls like the one using the children's library become influential agents of change.
