Create a Library for 350 Kids in Rural Nicaragua

New building for Paz y Vida's community library
New building for Paz y Vida's community library

Interview Paz y Vida citizens and many will tell you that “Poverty has moved elsewhere.”  Living in a house complete with flooring, water and electricity is magical. The children of 72 families no longer begin their day in search of wood and water.  They suddenly have time to go to school, time to read and time to play.  Citizens of Paz y Vida are about to take another giant step forward.  With the opening of Biblioteca Paz y Vida in July, those children will also have access to books.

Please meet our Paz y Vida Library Creation Team!  We are business people, a teacher, a physician’s assistant, a high school freshman, and a project manager for AMNLAE, a women’s cooperative in Nicaragua. We are volunteers.  Creating village libraries is what we love to do!  From the moment we land in Nicaraguan the fun begins, and all hands are on deck.  In ten days, a lifeless, empty building will become a buzzing library full of books, games, puzzles, kids and laughter.

Your generosity will serve thousands.  Andrew Carnegie claimed that “A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people.  It is a never failing spring in the desert.”  Please check back in July and August to witness that magic...your magic.  Thank you.
