Library refurbishment slowly proceeding

Hello friends! We did not receive donations for this project during the past several months, so no big activities to report. FAVL continues of course to support 38 libraries and a variety of reading programs in Burkina Faso. We look forward to honoring David pace sometime in the near future, we have had other donations separately from this source, so probably in 2022 we will start the work. We also are waiting for the population in Burkina Faso to be vaccinated against COVID19; apparently even Bereba village (about 5 hours from the capital city of Ouagadougou) has had 100 persons vaccinated. So it is happening slowly.

Hello friends! We did not receive donations for this project during the past several months, so no big activities to report. FAVL continues of course to support 38 libraries and a variety of reading programs in Burkina Faso. We look forward to making books purchases later this year, so any spare funds you might have for donations would be much appreciated. We are including several photos taken in August from the libraries. Many are thriving, and see regular readers. So, having a steady stream of new books is important for promoting the joy of reading. We look forward to purchased more girl-centered and women-authored books!

Activities at the Multimedia Center continue with regular training sessions for young women from neighboring villages.

Our coordinator writes (translated from French):

The multimedia center of Houndé completed its training of a second group of young women from Karaba in computer tools. It was June 26 at the Houndé Multimedia Center. They were 10 young women to participate with assiduity in this training which lasted 8 days. It was also an opportunity for them to learn how to write children's books. It is with great joy that they receive their training certificates at the Karaba community library. According to the young women they plan to continue working on the book texts they have been developing so that FAVL might eventually print and distribute them to village libraries.
