Béléhédé Community Library Update

The Community Library project in Béléhédé is well under way. Alou has been overseeing renovations of the building, which are just about finished, and I'll be sending up money for paint, furniture, and the finishing touches next week. One of the FAVL activity and project coordinators will be training him at the end of the month to handle all of the duties of a librarian and we hope to be open within the next few months. While we have enough money to buy the first batch of books, I'm still hoping to raise another $2,000-$4,000 so the library can be as well-stocked as possible before I head back to the States this summer. To that end, I've put the project up on the Peace Corps website - if you'd like to donate, please visit the link below!
