Books for Children of AIDS Patients

We are delighted to once again donate books as holiday gifts for children of AIDS patients at Bay State Health. 

Pictured is Kristen Benjamin, a RN working with HIV/AIDS patients in Springfield, Massachusetts. We worked with Kristen to match up a book specifically for each child.

More books are Heading to Bolivia!

More Spanish-language books are on their way to Arani, Bolivia.

The donation is part of Reader to Reader’s partnership with the KUSIKUY, a social enterprise business that is working to retail the alpaca fiber clothing crafted by the village’s knitters.

As part of the partnership, Reader to Reader is donating computers, Spanish-language children’s books, and a  collection of business marketing books that have been requested in order to help support the educational needs of local entrepreneurs.

At an altitude of 9,400 feet, the village of Arani is located in the center of Bolivia, and has a population of  3,512.
