Volunteer to Return to Rabondo
Volunteer to Return to Rabondo

It is always a great pleasure when a volunteer chooses to return to continue a project.  In early 2012, Maggie volunteered to assist at the Distance Learning enter in Rabondo.  Sorting through books, cataloging them and placing them on the new shelving in the tiny library was a hot but rewarding job.  While working outside with the books, the children heading home for lunch were drawn like a magnet.  That was when Maggie decided to start a reading program.  Selecting a child's picture book from the myriad books on the table. She began to read!  What fascination and wonder.  From that day it was hard to get the children to go have lunch and then return to school! 

This fall, 2012, Maggie has decided to return to the Distance Learning Center to continue the reading program and assist with the computer classes.
