An indigenous community in Ecuador wishes to construct and fill a library for its elementary school in the Northern Sierras of Ecuador. The kids have no books to learn to enjoy reading with, or books to further their learning if they so desire. A collection of books in Spanish, English, and Kichwa is ideal. Learning to read is a gift for a child that will last his or her whole life. Once you learn to read, you never forget it. The kids will be able to learn to read, then read to learn. By this philosophy the kids can take the future of the community and apply knowledge through reading to improve the quality of their own lives. Even if only one child grasps onto this concept, that one child may be the one to grow up and help the whole community.

We would also like to expand the number of computers in the library. The school already has four computers which classes of 16 utilize twice a week, but it is difficult to learn with four kids on each computer. We hope to add two additional computers to aid in learning with games and hopefully internet in the future. With the equipment needed, the children can receive the education that every kid deserves.

The Bukhara English Youth Center is a young organization with a bright future to play a defining role within civil society in Uzbekistan. Started in 1996 through the collaboration of Peace Corps Volunteers and the city of Bukhara, BEYC has thrived independently for eight years. BEYC is unique in that it is the only location in the region where people of varying ages can practice their English language skills and gain a deeper understanding of English speaking cultures. BEYC is also the only venue in the region providing youth-based programming. It currently has over 600 members and over 90% of study-abroad candidates from Bukhara are present or past members of the organization. In addition many of Bukhara¿s emerging business leaders are former members of the organization. BEYC has been and continues to be integral in creating and fostering leaders for Uzbekistan. Its members are the future of our Uzbekistan and the bridge to inter-cultural understanding. While the organization has a bright future based on its current operations, the acquisition of adequate programming space will enable the organization to reach new heights in the services it offers to the Republic of Uzbekistan. Full funding of this project will allow BEYC to own a centrally located, structurally adequate programming space that will build the capacity of BEYC as an organization and ensure the sustainability of the center.
