Books for worthy children
Organized by: Carol Traverse
I want to get text and story books to a neighborhood in Guatemala City that has very limited options. The divide between the haves and have nots' is only a hurdle to be jumped. My son and 2 of his City year, Americorps friends have agreed to travel to Mexico City where it is possible to buy a variety of books suitable for children up to the age of 18. They will then deliver these books to a school in the 12 zone, Guatemala City. As students themselves this has to be done by the end of July. We are hoping for at least 5000 dollars. This is traveling expenses and for the books, some of which could cost up to 100 USD each, being that we have in mind math, biology, astronomy etc... in mind. and of course, fictional stories . What all kids need. Please consider our cause.
