The community of Maragua
We are excited to announce yet another new BiblioWorks library. The new project is in the community of Maragua, approximately 40 miles from the city of Sucre. The community is inside an ancient crater created by a meteor and is surrounded by the main mountain chain that runs through the middle of the region, la Cordillera de los Frailes. Education is extremely poor and the community leaders and teachers are very excited to be a part of this project. This, along with our other new library project this year, will be the 10th rural library that BiblioWorks has opened and supported since 2005.
This project is the result of a collaborative effort with Early Stage an organization based in Poland, which raised all of the funds for the project and Condortrekkers, a non-profit trekking company based in Sucre.
The three organizations are currently working together to purchase books, do minor repairs to the library space and organize the teachers to be able to use the library materials effectively.
We can always use more support for this and other library projects. Please visit our Get Involved page to find out how you can support literacy and education in Bolivia!
