#332: Books and Craft Supplies, Nicaragua:  $10.00 will purchase a book and $25.00 will provide craft supplies for a 4-series program held once a week in a library program.  Most children in Nicaragua start school without ever having read a book. The nonprofit organization, Seeds of Learning is addressing this need with the newly opened Barrilete Library and Tutoring Space. Located in the city of Matagalpa (pop. 150,000), this is the first resource of its kind in the city. The library offers books, reading activities and story hours, homework assistance, tutoring, and a computer lab. The library also offers activities such as arts and crafts classes and science experiments.
