I am living in Barranquilla, Colombia where I teach English to people who want to improve thier personal lives and / or their work situation. The biggest challenge I have in doing this is this: a lack of books. I need level readers of levels 1, 2, and 3. They are not available here in any bookstores.
So, what am I here on Crowdrise for? Books, or some money to buy books (though another person will have to do that online for me, I have no bank account/credit cards/debit cards). That's all.
I'm not looking for thousands of dollars to help pay for a trip around the world, or some huge medical bill. I am working and earning enough to get by (which means it's not enough to save any extra money, but I am living well enough.) So I just need some books or a bit of money to buy some - a few hundred dollars will go a long way to buying a good selection of books for new English learners.
Thank you for taking a minute or two to read my profile.
