September 2016 – Books 4 Kids program delivers new library to Gilberto Siles School

It was a humbling experience for our SchoolBOX team in Nicaragua to deliver a new library to the Gilberto Siles School near Masaya, Nicaragua, last week. Not only were the children smiling and full of excitement to begin reading their new books; the teachers were so grateful for the resources that they now have to teach with.

Principal Salinas of Gilberto Siles, said that it was the first time in 28 years at the school that children could hold library books in their hands.

SchoolBOX will deliver a total of 16 mini libraries to our partner schools this fall!

Watch here as Principal Salinas shares her gratitude for the new Gilberto Siles library:
