Our deepest thanks to Reader to Reader volunteer (and recent high school graduate) Julia Springer for raising over $1,800 dollars for the Beyond el Campo literacy project.
Beyond el Campo works together with local community members in rural Costa Rica in an effort to strengthen their access to books and literacy rate.
The project is building a much-needed public library in the coffee-farming village of Santa Cruz, employing literacy tutors and supplying books for summer reading camps.
Julia’s successful fundraiser, which was held at her home in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, will help bring desperately needed resources that will benefit people of all ages in Costa Rica.
Three cheers for Julia!
