International Partners sponsors bibliotecas in 5 villages in El Salvador. The bibliotecas are run by a community facilitator and offer a place for the students in the community to go after school to continue and enrich their learning. The facilitators lead students in educational games and enrichment activities and provide support on school work as needed. Currently 4 of the 5 libraries have been funded by donors for the next fiscal year, however, IP still needs donation to fund the library in Hacienda Vieja. We are trying to raise $7,000 to cover the operational costs of this biblioteca, so it can continue to provide services for the students in the community. Among other things, this cost includes that facilitator's annual salary, technology and technology maintenance, supplies (paper, materials, books, etc), and monthly training meetings for facilitators. Any donation great or small is appreciated as we work toward this goal!
