Announcing CSCA-Gondar Council’s “Holiday Giving Challenge-2023”
Our Challenge is Simple = Supporting school and donkey libraries in Gondar Ethiopia, Corvallis' sister city... and putting books in the hands of children
What are donkey libraries?
Donkey libraries are donkeys that have been equipped with harnesses to transport books to form a mobile library. Each donkey, and their library, is cared for and managed by a trained donkey librarian. The donkey libraries travel to isolated schools where they lend books to children to support their learning and to teachers to enhance their lessons. The donkey librarians support children with their reading by holding group story reading sessions during their school visits.
