This is my first time volunteering for Reading Hamlets. Reading Hamlets is an attempt to provide books to children in Nigeria which are needed to achieve literacy. They are very organized and have their tasks written down. So there's no question of not understanding what they expect from you as a volunteer.

I have volunteered with several other non profits over the years. Reading Hamlets is the smallest size I've ever volunteered for. They are small but effective. I have been so impressed with the enthusiasm and dedication of the staff.
Looking forward to working with you again.

Christina Ude, the Executive Director of Reading Hamlets, has incredible energy and loves what she does. She exudes this natural light that I can only imagine is a strong motivator for engaging children in the excitement and importance of reading in schools & at home.
