Here are a few photos from the last couple of weeks which included picking coffee, a quick visit to NYC (beautiful weather, friends and an inspiring conference on empowering women in microfinance!), a women's personal finance course, more books for the library and an almost finished multi-use salon (the new home for the library and other community groups/projects).

These women's plans include: a store, a jewelry workshop,
a clothing manufacturing shop and a catering business (among others!)

We are planning monthly story telling, plays and movies along
with a big event before I leave to make sure all the
school children are making use of all these great books.
