On my recent trip to Guatemala our teen reading promoters made it clear to me that they understand the depth of the work they are doing. Over and over again I heard them talk about how it’s more than reading to kids, it’s about transforming their entire community. They see changes in themselves, the kids they read to, the teachers at the elementary school, their brothers and sisters and the community at large.
The teens in both communities are in the process of working with local community leaders to open up a space for a community library! Your investment in them impacts the whole community.
