BENEFITING: WORLDWIDE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
Imagine being relocated by the government to a bit of land where others speak a different dialect and you are called “dogs” by the nearby villages. Worse, you are left without access to the basics necessities.
This happened to the people of Abule Reserve in Nigeria. In 2008, we stepped in to help. First, we asked the elders what they most wanted to see change. They replied, “A school with books!” We built the school with six classrooms, helped the villagers dig a deep water well, and a latrine. Put chairs and desks into the classrooms and provided teaching materials. A committee of village elders was formed to oversee the running of the school.
We are pleased to report that the school has ninety-two children, six teachers, and an administrator.
BUT no library….until now.
An elementary school in the states donated 1500 high quality books. That’s a great start.
What we need now, and that’s where you come in dear donor, is $9, 500 to complete the library, build shelves, and ship the books.
What’s the big deal about a library? A big deal indeed. For most children in developing nations an education is far out of reach. Access to learning and books to read is literally a life changing event for the children. The books give them a window on the world. Books also give them something else--hope. Hope for a better tomorrow.
When you donate to this project we will keep you updated as to the progress of the library and share pictures of the children who are eagerly awaiting the books. Donate today and be part of a legacy of hope.
