Active: Library Project In Honor Of Barbara Rogers– Tecpan, Guatemala: $1,920 Raised so Far. (Only $80 Left to Raise!)

The Children’s Corner Library Project is dedicated to the late Barbara Rogers who was the caring sponsor of many children including Vilma Pac Sut pictured with her sister, Maria.

The girls live in an area where books and educational resources are scarce and unaffordable to most people in their community. It’s our goal to help the library in Tecpan stock up on books, DVD’s, educational materials, seating and lighting, and to also have the ability to show films and multimedia materials.

Mckenzie Fritch, a close friend of Barbara and a long time Aura’s House supporter, organized the collection of donations given by guests at Barbara’s memorial service where $920 was collected. We aim to raise a total of $2,000 to enhance the library with a TV, home theater system with a DVD player and sound system, 20 educational DVD’s, a rug, window blinds, board games, puzzles, cushions, a ceiling lamp, and additional books and learning materials.

A Tribute to Our Dear Friend, Barbara Rogers

Dear Friends,
