After a long wait, the bookstore in Ouaga finally got more copies of the 6 Aya books! With funds raised on GlobalGiving, we were able to purchase 15 of the books (at least 2 copies of each number in the series). Each library will receive 2 of the books, and 3 libraries will receive an additional book. Readers are impatiently waiting the new books to find out what happens next in the adventures of Aya de Yopougon.
We've been increasing efforts to promote the series in the village libraries. Recently, we started working with a software called Frontline SMS, which allows us to use a computer to send a mass text message to a network of librarians and readers. We've started using Frontline to promote Aya and encourage librarians to come up with innovative activities and projects based on the books.
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.
Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
