Feb 8, 2022 | Uncategorized

Wondering what impact our November-December Holiday Appeal: Books for Gondar are having in our sister city, Gondar, Ethiopia?   Below is an excerpt from our partner, Open Hearts Big Dreams.

Our Gratitude to Corvallis Sister City!

Thank you to the Corvallis Sister Cities Association for donating 1200 locally printed Ready, Set, Go books to schools and libraries in Gondar, Ethiopia (Corvallis’ Sister City). Corvallis has also sponsored several books, including two featuring Gondar! We are very grateful for their generous sponsorship in creating, printing, and distributing books to kids in Ethiopia. Thanks also to Together We Learn (formerly Link Ethiopia) for distributing the books and providing training. You can sponsor a book, too!
