    FAVL Intro for Chen Proposal FAVL Intro for Chen Proposal Presentation Transcript

    • Friends of African Village Libraries
    • FAVL’s own story began with one small library, in one small town in Burkina Faso.
    • FAVL LibrariesEver since that first seed was planted, we’ve been helping it grow by partnering with other communities in Africa, and with supporters around the world.
    • FAVL aims to help develop a culture of reading. That starts to happen when people begin to read for pleasure as well as for purpose.
    • FAVL librarians are from the communities they serve. They get training andsupport, and are encouraged to look for ways to make their libraries better.
    • FAVL libraries need to keep adding books to lure in the new readers, motivate the reluctant readers, and satisfy the eager readers.
    • At the very popular FAVL summer reading camps, children have many creative opportunities to sharpen their skills in reading, writing, and public speaking.
    • If libraries give children good memories to take away, they’ll be returning with their own children one day.
