Buying Aya Books

| No Comments
Thanks to some generous donations on GlobalGiving adding up to $200, we were able to purchase 12 Aya books for the libraries. Sadly, DIACFA was out of copies of the first book in the series, but we were able to get 5 copies of number 2 and 7 copies of number 3. That's enough for us to send one copy to each library to get their collections of 5 started. The kids will be excited to see the new arrivals. The graphic novels are a big hit because they are written in west African French and include relatable characters and stories. You can follow our quest to get the series in each library both here and with regular reports on FAVL's GlobalGiving page. Here are some photos of Dounko checking out DIACFA's selection for your enjoyment!
