Review for Child Aid, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Public schools in Guatemala, particularly in remote villages, have few if any resources. The books I have been able to get from Child Aid to share with some of these schools have been received with a kind of heart-felt thanks and wonder that enhances the power of reading and writing in ways hard to believe. Teachers, earning less than $150 a month, and students coming to school with nothing more than a tortilla for lunch, if that, are amazed by these books and so proud to have them in their school "libraries". They have worked hard to raise a small amount to help pay for them and value them beyond measure. Thank you, John and Child Aid, you are making a huge difference on the ground and in the classroom!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I helped start a scholarship program for students here in remote villages who have little or no access to middle schools. We are now sending 75 students to school and our goal for next year is 100. Their schools are the recipients of some of these books.
