Vacation in the Libraries

The school year may be over, but that doesn’t mean the learning stops in our communities in rural Guatemala! In November, we sponsored Vacation in the Libraries, a two-week camp of literacy activities, at La Cumbre, Chacaya, and Nueva Providencia Primary Schools.

During these two weeks, 132 children participated in a wide array of literacy activities, ranging from storytelling exercises to games. Vacation in the Libraries typically focuses on alternative literacy methods, using theater, clowns, and play to engage students. This year’s camp included body awareness activities to help students develop physical literacy, such as large and fine motor skills.

According to Lidia Quieju, the Pathways to Literacy Project Coordinator, Vacation in the Libraries is important because it “inspires excitement towards reading and literacy. Students learn that literature is fun.” Children told us “how excited they were to return to school and use the library!”

Encouraging a generation of new readers is possible only with the support of donors like you. As we near the end of the year, Pueblo a Pueblo is counting on you to help us reach our year-end fundraising goal of $60,000. With every dollar, we can continue this cycle of change for communities in rural Guatemala. Together we can build more libraries, bring more dynamic literacy activities to schools, and empower more communities.

Donate today to make a difference in the lives of students in rural Guatemala!
