National Library of Uganda

Established in 2003, the National Library of Uganda supports national library policies and standards, provides advising services, and advocates for libraries. Working with several partners, NLU supports literacy, librarian training, and technical skills. One program, supported by EIFL, trains young people in basic computer literacy at three public libraries to help them improve their skills, employability, and ability to access information about job opportunities. NLU is also developing a program to help pregnant teenagers learn to use technology to access information that will help them improve their health and livelihoods.
