The above video highlights all the hard work and dedication that the BiblioWorks Organization put into the first ever Literacy Fair in Sucre, Bolivia this past spring. La Feria de La Lectura was held in Plazuela San Francisco on April 14, 2012, and it went off without a hitch!
This was the culmination of my four months of volunteering in Bolivia with BiblioWorks and being involved with such a great organization and event was by far my proudest travel moment to date.
Although this chapter is now closed and I’m now working with Kiva here in Guatemala, I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who helped make this video possible.
First and foremost, I want to thank Matt, Maritza, Roxi, Marcello, Josh , Erin and the rest of the BiblioWorks staff and volunteers for letting me be part of this awesome experience.
To the 15 local educational institutions who each created a unique booth and learning program that promoted literacy, and to the 11 corporate sponsors who donated a variety of resources including books, games and refreshments… thank you.
Working with Sacred Hearts in Cusco, Peru that gave me the inspiration to fundraise for the event and your continued help in promoting this project that made it possible.
Last, but definitely not least, a HUGE thank you to all the friends, family and readers of Tourist2Townie.com whose donations and support helped us reach our goal of $2,500 to fund the entire event!
THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO DONATED
