  • Description


    I am a member of the Management Team of a Library in an underprivileged community in Grenada in the Caribbean. It is staffed by Volunteers. Does not receive any Government funding.
    There are Reading and Home work assistance program for Children ages 3 years to 12 years.
    there's an average of 30 children who need assistance with reading but also want to teach them computers.

    The Community Library is located in the Village of Beaton, the Parish of St. David in the Spice Island of Grenada in the Caribbean.
    Because of the limited curriculum, there was a need for outside assistance for the Children of the community to help with Reading.
