$2,093 raised, only $907 left to reach our goal! It’s week 4 of our 6 week Viva Fund Campaign, raising funds for our Youth Program in El Salvador. This post continues the Viva Fund series, outlining the expansion and successes of our program. Learn about the Youth Program and give generously to support reading promotion in El Salvador.
In coordination with the Ministry of Culture and allied organizations Izote and ConTextos, the Youth Program has opened two public libraries and is in the process of opening eight school libraries. In addition, youth from the communities are being trained as reading promoters. Many of the literacy promoters are working on the new Community Libraries project in which they are promoting literacy and the love of literature amongst people of all ages.
