I am learning how to download a picture from the camera to this page. Most of the time that I had to accomplish this on my break from class has passed. It is likely that it will take me a few more tries to figure this out.
I chose Probigua because it is a non-profit school that also works to establish libraries in out of the way villages. It also travels to villages with two school busses of books. The man in the picture is the founder, Rigoberto. I have met him and he seems like a wonderful man. At some point, I will show him our website and see if he can help us to organize the books that SewHope has and perhaps get a bus to the Peten. I believe that this picture was taken in the square of the local church. The people are looking at the main door of the church and the school is a short way down the street to the right as you face the picture. It is my hope to be able to travel with the bus to visit some of the schools and to see their libraries and how they are organized. One thing is true, when a book is in the hands of a child, that child is smiling.
