East African ADULT Literacy Project

South Sudan - Kenya - Uganda - Democratic Republic of Congo

Headed by Kenyan Pastor PATRICK MALASI, the East African Literacy Project is a multi-level community training and tutoring program encompassing the development of primers and workbooks in native languages, and tutor and facilitator training.  The project partners with local governments, communities, and churches bringing literacy to one community at a time.  Thomas Charities helps facilitate the funding for this project.  If you are specifically interested in helping this project, please contact us at

We Need Your Books!

Thomas Charities has an ambitious plan to implement the collection of old edition primary and secondary school textbooks and student workbooks as the beginning of 3 lending libraries located in the vicinity of these public schools. Currently, there are no libraries in these areas and as you can see in the photos, the students learn without textbooks or workbooks. We collect books of all types including reference sets year-round.  Please contact us at for book donations and shipping containers.

Thomas Charities promotes literacy and education in the most neglected government schools in Uganda.  We have begun a Stay in School Campaign currently targeting several public schools in Mbale, Uganda.  Pictured above are scenes from the public schools and the HIV/AIDS and hygiene education and Gospel presentation that Thomas Charities provided in past years.
