Last Spring we asked you to help us purchase books for the library at Casita Adonai and you came through! Over 100 books were purchased and taken to Guatemala where our summer teams added them to the current collection. The teachers on our teams worked hard to code all of the books by grade level and other members of our teams spruced the room up with paint, new furniture, and artwork by the students at Hayworth Christian School in High Point, NC. A special highlight was when our teachers shared their experiences with the Casita teachers on how to best use the library and teaching kids to read.
The teachers at Casita are taking their students to the library regularly and report that this is often the highlight of their week. Very few families have books in their homes because they are so expensive, so having a library is a treat! We were even able to deliver adult books for our teachers to enjoy in their lounge.
Thank you for investing in our students and teachers at Casita Adonai. We believe that education is one of the main factors in breaking cycles of poverty. Thanks for helping us accomplish this!
We will continue collecting books throughout the year. If you would like to participate, check out our library wish list here.
