Girls Soon to be Reading Wikipedia

I can read and now I can use the internet.
I can read and now I can use the internet.

First of all a big "muchas gracias" to all of you who have donated to promote reading among girls in Guatemala. To date we have raised a total of $17,590 with ONLY $410 to go before hitting our target.  Clearly, that doesn't mean that the work is done but our next big push is technology based resources. Now that so many girls are reading we will soon be increasing their access to educational content available through the internet.  The Spanish language videos from the Khan Academy and Wikipedia are just a few of the resources that will soon be available to girls and their moms.  Imagine the sense of freedom and confidence building that will come from having access to all of the information on the internet. You have helped to make this possible.  Thank you.
