Two, my library project will be starting soon at the middle school. The parents' organizations is building shelves and collecting 1000 cups of rice from all school parents; which they will sell off to pay off for the librarians' first year salary. If you're interested in helping, we need French-English dictionaries, kids books in English, and any books in French. You can send books to my address at the right side of the screen (and if you happen to include some stuff from my wish list, I wouldn't complain! :)
Third, we have a new PC group coming in soon! Hey new people! I wrote a blog post to the last stage a few months ago that you're welcome to go check out. The training schedule has changed a fair amount, though--the last stage has a tech trip instead of site visits, spent a month with host families, and didn't get their site placements until a bit later. I've gotta warn you, though--many areas of Mad are hot and tropical, but the area where you'll be training is going to be cold and rainy, so be prepared. Also, volunteers highly recommend having a computer, plus an external (loaded with movies) and a thumb drive or two. Welcome to the modern Peace Corps.
OK, I promise my next post will be more cultural and interesting! Until then!
