Photos of a finished library....and some super adorable children!
Here it is. The Craig J Abouchar library in all its glory. Isn't it beautiful!!
It officially opened in late June, and is being used by the larger community over the summer. In total, this library will serve 1,000 children in Chihuahua City, Mexico. Children who otherwise may have NO access to books. 80% of juvenlie deliquents worldwide are illiterate. Too often, they simply do not have the tools to break out of the grim and grinding cycle of poverty, gang violence and drug warfare. Thank you for helping us try to break this cycle.
The children in these photos are the children who attend the primary charter school, Colegio Riberas School, opened earlier this year by local women, the school attached to our library. They are all so adorable; I want to give each and every one of them a big hug!!!
We still have a bit more to raise: http://annelibrarymexico.squarespace.com
