Reviews for Frances And Henry Riecken Foundation, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined the board because I was able to see, for myself, the impact of these libraries on rural communities in Central America. I saw young girls showing off their reading schools. I saw indigenous residents meeting to discuss community issues. I saw young people doing research on computers for their homework rather than hanging out in the streets. Riecken Libraries allow so many under-served, deserving people gain free access to information and join the global community.
