  3. Hi Linda,
    Wow. Wow. And thank you for allowing me to more or less have coffee with you this morning as you tell me about Concepcion and Julio and Rosemery: ) Clearly, these young people are becoming reading ambassadors and leaders in the community–innovating ways to bring reading in, when an existing method no is no longer available. I am so proud to be associated with Reading Village, and your work outstanding work.

  4. The money Pat and I donate to your program is clearly among the most effectively used among all the charities we give to. And we get to see the direct evidence of its effectiveness all the time! We give money, kids learn to read. Simple! It makes us feel so good!

  5. And the cinematography is stunning. Who was the cameraman??? But seriously, I’m fortunate enough to see the progress with my own eyes about every six months and it’s astounding what we are achieving on a shoestring thanks largely to Linda and our amazing Guatemala coordinator, Daniel Guzman. Good job!
