This project has not yet received sufficient funding to be fully implementing. Moreover, we continue to have difficulties recruiting a qualified person to operate the Houndé multimedia center and do the training in the center. A meeting was held in December 2017 with staff from the office of the mayor in Houndé, as we continue to work with them for effective solutions to staffing and operations problems for the two libraries in the Houndé region and the multimedia center. (See photos below, where the mayor of Houndé signed the convention for partnership for operations of the two libraries.) Thank you for being patient with us.
FAVL continues to operate 34 community libraries in Burkina Faso. Our latest December 2017 newsletter is available here. In the coming months of 2018, we will continue to supply libraries in our network with new books, as funding permits. We are also producing 16 more photo books for distribution in the libraries.
