The word Kitabu is a Kiswahili dialect for book and Buk is a luo dialect for book hence the name Kitabu-Buk Project. The project was started by A world at school Global Youth Ambassadors, Brownie Ebal and Ameso Angela Anyolo on 15th August, 2014. This idea was inspired by the Youth Assembly at the United Nations conference where Brownie got to interact with youths of about 15- 30 years who were doing amazing things in their community. As Youth Ambassadors, using the Advocacy tool kit, they are to initiate projects in their communities that address societal needs specifically in the area of education. This is explained in great detail in this published article- http://www.aworldatschool.org/global-youth-ambassadors/entry/Uganda-Global-youth-ambassador-on-youth-assembly-at-UN
Though the Government has done a great deal in relation to Universal access to education in the country, some communities remain lagging behind and therefore the organization seeks to supplement these efforts.
