Great news. The French books arrived today!
Thanks to the incredible generosity of family and friends, (in response to my “needing books” request) I will be transporting 230 books in my suitcases this weekend to create a classroom library in Port au Prince, Haiti. You have no idea what this means to me…and what it will mean to the teachers…and to the eager readers at ANA Primary School!
They currently read paper workbooks with pictures to color and text below.
The joy of reading is such a gift…and it will be so much fun to share these new books with the kiddos. Huge amounts of gratitude go out to the individuals that donated towards this effort…I could have not done this without you! Additional money was used to to pay for the shipping costs to have them sent from Canada, to purchase collapsible fabric bins for storing the books, as well as to help pay for my extra piece of luggage. Mesi! Mesi! Mesi!
It truly takes a village…and I am blessed to be a little part of this plan.
