Dear friends:

We are very happy to announce the successful compliance of the construction and furnishing of the Cultural Center for earthquake victims in the little fishing village of Don Juan, Manabi-Ecuador.  Together with your generous donations we have finished constructing a seismic resistance beautiful bamboo building. The Cultural Center stands in the middle of the village and is house to the library, the training center,  workshop area, volunteer lodging and gardens. The library is equipped with 3.500 books, 10 computers, 6 professional photo cameras, video, tv and other training equipment. With the cooperation of international and national volunteers the Cultural Center opens on a daily basis offering the following programs:

  • Reading remedial program
  • Homework assistance
  • A day in the LIbrary (grade school comes to the Library)
  • Engilsh classes in the local grade school
  • English classes for adults in the Library
  • Tae won do for girls
  • Photography workshop for girls
  • Continued education for adults (in coordination with the Ministerio de Eduación)

All our efforts are starting to show results:  children and women gather in the Cultural Center to resolve their homework, read with friends or browse through encyclopedias and the internet.  The Cultural Center and Library has proven to be a safe haven for all who come, specially children and women. This is a place where they are treated with warmth and respect, were their curiosity is valued and their opinions matter.

We are proud of what we have achieved and are ready to take the next step.  We are going to focus on our Library Bus

https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/library-bus-for-northern-manabi-coast-ecuador/

With a library bus we will be able to take all the successful projects to other remote villages in our surroundings.   We very much appreciate your continued support and will enjoy having you on board with us on this next challenge.

Your recurring donations will roll over this new effort.  Keep in mind Giving Tuesday (Nov 27) when Global Giving will match 100% of your donations. Please consider sharing our information with friends and family:

with gratitude
