Spotlight School: Our Newest Library
Chispa Project works in Honduras to create children's libraries, and to date, we've brought 18,000 books to over 50 different schools and organizations. These are the students' first access to kids' books, which directly impact reading fluidity and comprehension.
Our goal is to put 500 new books in the hands of the 315 students at Manuel de Jesus Morales Elementary School in Northern Honduras. The town, el Progreso is one of the many communities still recovering from Hurricane Mitch in 2008, and now struggles with massive immigration issues and students in high risk of being targeted in gang violence.
Help us make a big step in providing materials to help spark a desire of lifetime learning, good reading habits, and creative and critical thinking skills! Together we will write the next chapter, because books change the story.
Where does the money go?
100% of donations go to creating this library! Donations support 1,300 books in Spanish, bookshelves, decorations, paint, teacher training, parent workshops, and activities and crafts to introduce the students to the variety of books available in their new library.
The total value of this library is $10,550, and we are asking for your help in completing our goal with the last $4,000.
