Hello friends of PGL! It has been way too long since we’ve posted to our blog, but rest assured, we are still going strong! If you’ve seen our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PathwaysToGlobalLiteracy?fref=ts), you’ve likely seen some updates and photos from our partners. Some of the most exciting updates include our providing materials to young women and girls in Nairobi, Kenya, through Heshima Kenya (http://www.heshimakenya.org/index.php). They do excellent work, and we are proud to be supporting them with books and supplies for their library/learning centers for young women, many of whom are refugees from Somalia.
Our work in the Dominican Republic also continues, and remains our main focus. Most of the credit goes to our local partners and staff, whose hard work and leadership make the libraries a great success among local children! Nancy Kilby and Rose Deardorff remain the engines here in the U.S., with the board cheering them on. We have a number of expansion projects in mind, so stay tuned!
