BiblioWorks Welcomes It’s First Volunteer to Bolivia

BiblioWorks’ Latin America Project Coordinator, Megan Sherar, is currently accompanied by our first ever BiblioWorks Volunteer in Bolivia.

Allison Dahl, from St. Louis, Missouri, arrived to Sucre in mid-April to begin working with BiblioWorks’ literacy and education initiatives and will be collaborating with Megan until the end of May.

She accompanied Megan during the inauguration of the Presto library, and the donation of computers to the Cororo high school.  She spent several days working in the Morado K’asa library with Julia Ortiz, current Peace Corps volunteer in Morado – practicing reading and writing activities with the kids.  She will be helping with library training courses in both Patacon and Presto this month, and will be participating in meetings in communities where we are considering libraries in the communities.  Allison has also been putting her efforts into helping us look for continual financial support for our projects, translate the biblioworks.org site, and do a running inventory of the books that we now have in storage in Sucre.

Welcome Allison!
