"Today I had a very beautiful moment. I have always heard children asking for food or money, but for the first time in my life I saw a group of children ask for a story. And that, for me, is very significant" — Gael Dhaenens, Reading Village's new Community Facilitator in Guatemala.
He couldn't have captured the essence of our work any better!
Help us bring this love of reading and the opportunity for a brighter future to the children in one more community.
This year Reading Village will begin recruiting teen reading promoters in a third community. Our goal is to raise $10,000 on Wednesday, March 14th to pay for the educational expenses and training of these youth as reading promoters and community leaders.
Donations on March 14th — and that day only — will be matched on our GlobalGiving site – and only there. Mark your calendar!
