Training for Librarians throughout Central America

Early childhood training for librarians.
Early childhood training for librarians.

Very recently, under the very able leadership of our early dhildhood development expert, Alba Estrada, from Quiche, El Quiche, Guatemala conducted training sessions for our librarians in both Guatemala and Honduras.  The program is being expanded to five communities in Guatemala and ten in Honduras and, with your ongling support, we hope to expand the program to all 65 libraries.  There is no question that pre-literacy activities are crucial to later educational success and there is no question that the nutritional information that is disseminated to the familes is crucial in countries with very high rates of malnutrition.  When asked to report of their experiences after a number of years of attending our first pilot program in Quiche most of the mothers mention first the change in their children after they learned about the need for a varied diet including protein and vegetables. 

Young children should be lively and engaged in all the activities of an early childhood development program rather than listless and inattentive.  With your help we will be able to expand this program throughout the network of 65 communities that we currently serve.  Thank you again for your ongoing support.
