Challenge

The fishing village of Puerto Lopez doesn't have easy access to books for children. Books are expensive and most families can't afford to have books in the home. There is limited opportunity in Puerto Lopez for after school activities that engage children and teenagers

Solution

Children have a real hunger for reading . Books open the world to children allowing them to experience the ideas and thoughts of others around the globe. Expanding our small reading room by adding a greater volume and variety of books will help create the habit and the lifelong love for reading. English language instruction is an avenue to expanded future higher education and employment opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

Readers are leaders and Leaders are readers. Reading elevates kids above the daily routine. Fictional stories can provide an escape and a journey into the unknown. Biographies often model leadership skills, self-improvement techniques and accomplishment capabilities. Books can inspire with tales of great achievements thus giving an opportunity spend time with interesting people learning new things. Readers learn from an unlimited number of individuals to become the leaders of tomorrow.
