What was your favourite book when you were little? Was it "The Cat in the Hat" or maybe "The Hungry Caterpillar"? Sadly, many children in Ecuador can't answer this question.
The availability of books is something most of us take for granted. In Ecuador, books are very expensive and beyond the reach of many of the families in Larcacunga, Muenala and Huayrapungo.
However, thanks to the kind donations of past and present to this project, we have been able to assist our children to purchase textbooks at a subsidised cost. Also, at Christmas time, the kids received gifts of story books and much needed gumboots.
So, next time you're reading your favourite book, spare a thought for the kids in Ecuador that are able to experience the joy of reading thanks to donations!
