Do you remember the joy of reading books as a child? Unfortunately, many Guatemalan children in rural communities will never know that joy. In Guatemala, children's books cost more than 1 or 2 day's salary of an agricultural worker, many children are first generation readers and libraries are unheard of in most communities. This means Guatemalan children in rural areas have few opportunities to sit down and read a good book.
This project will provide Guatemalan children with access to age appropriate books in their own language that they can read in a quiet reading corner during our community educational events.
Our goal is to unlock Guatemalan children's potential through improved literacy. Better literacy is associated with better health, better employment, and safer and more stable societies.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Support Educational Play in Guatemala. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
