Big Push for Early Childhood Development

Mom helping her kids to get started.

In just a few weeks a young woman who is pursuing her Master's degree at the University of Massachusetts in international education with a focus on early childhood development will be headed to Guatemala where she is going to evaluate our existing program and do a proposal for expanding the program through the Riecken network of 64 libraries.  Mothers are going to be interviewed and children tested in several communities to determine the effectiveness of the existing program and to help design an ongoing program.  We already know that the mothers are eager to have nutritional information.  Like mothers everywhere they would like to do what is best for their children but often do not have the necessary information. Often the mothers are illiterate which severely limits their access to nutritional information. We are very hopeful that you will continue to contribute to this very worthy project so that soon we might have thousands of children enrolled.
