May 2015 – Books 4 Kids Update
SchoolBOX plans to deliver their Books 4 Kids mini-libraries in the Fall of this year, but that has not stopped the SchoolBOX team from starting preparations. This month SchoolBOX Program Coordinator, Carlos Garcia, began visiting book suppliers all around Nicaragua to start sourcing books. He has a huge task ahead of him, as this year, we will need to source in excess of 3000 books ranging from educational books to story books for children.
The goal of the Books 4 Kids program is to equip teachers with the necessary materials to teach in the classroom and also for children to learn to love reading and to have fun in the classroom.
Through Carlos’ efforts, the Books 4 Kids program is in good hands this year.
