The Echo Children’s Library

During their trip to Rwanda in July 2010, Echo’s six Student Ambassadors put the finishing touches on the newly-constructed Echo Children’s Library. Working with Rwandans, the Ambassadors varnished the table, chairs and shelves, and organized, labeled and shelved the 1,500 books collected by our partners in North Carolina and shipped to Rwinkwavu. It is the first primary school library in Rwanda.

As the students and teachers strive to learn English following a 2008 government mandate declaring that education be provided in English instead of French, the Echo Children’s Library will serve as a valuable resource for the entire community of Rwinkwavu.
