Thursday we leaded up the vans again (28 of us in 2 vans!) after lunch to drive to the Kathy Knowles library in Goi, a village 2 hours away on the coast. The library is a busy and thriving centre for the needy community. Not only does it allow kids and adults to borrow books, it provides a quiet space for older students to study. It is a bright and inviting space that regularly sees 150-300 children per day.
We presented them with 30 backpacks loaded with various school supplies and a collection of Ottawa and Ontario pins.
As a special treat for us, they felled and served coconuts from trees on their property for us all. Super tasty!
