Help me publish my kids' book!

My project

As part of my final project for my semester abroad, I volunteered for two weeks at a children's library in rural Bolivia.  I was so inspired by the kids' big imaginations and use of library books to learn about the world that I decided to create a kids' book based on this library. The story is a crazy adventure that comes out of a library book that also highlights the natural wonders of Bolivia. I can't wait to present my book to the library, but I need your help publishing it first!

Why am I raising money

I am raising money to fund the publication of this book as part of the Kids Books Bolivia collection (check out http://www.kidsbooksbolivia.org/). The books will be printed in Bolivia and used for many different educational and fundraising purposes.  Moreover, I hope that this story will promote children's literature as a unique resource for children in changing cultures.  I would love your support in this process.

Why join/support me?

Your contribution will:

  • Help promote children's literature in a country that lacks access to kids books and libraries
  • Create a book accessible to English-speakers, Quechua-speakers, and Spanish-speakers alike
  • Promote cross-cultural education

I hope I can count on your support. I need caring people like you to sponsor my efforts.

Also, please bookmark this page if you’re interested in keeping track of my progress as I approach the fundraising deadline. I encourage you to browse the rest of this website so you can learn more about SIT Study Abroad and The Global Reciprocity Fund.
