This fundraiser closed over 2 years ago

The Bertha Gedeón de Báladi School* is dire need of everything, but the teachers want to concentrate on what’s really important: reading.

They would like to start a small library of 200 children’s literature books and 50 Spanish- English dictionaries. The books will be graded readers for K – 5 students.

550 students and 17 teachers will benefit from the library. Currently, the school only has 20 Spanish language dictionaries. Teachers buy their own textbooks and develop curriculum on their own. There is no children’s literature at the school.

Please help start a library today. One book is only $10!

*The school is in the very low income neighborhood of Vista Hermosa, in Cartagena, Colombia
