Review of Biblioworks by Stephanie Dyson

on 13/12/2015

One of the most rewarding 7 months of my life

I volunteered with BiblioWorks as their Volunteer and Communications Director between October 2014-May 2015. Living in Sucre and working with the team in the office was an absolute pleasure, and so much more interesting and involved than just visiting the city like a normal tourist.

In this role I got to visit the different libraries that BiblioWorks has helped to establish, meeting their partners and beneficiaries and getting to understand the profound effect that this NGO is having in the rural areas that need literacy support.

I also taught for a short while in one of their libraries and it was such an incredible experience to work with the young people and encourage them to make the most of their library.

The girls in the office are so welcoming and friendly, and the current Volunteers and Communications Director, Megan is dedicated and really supportive of volunteers.

If you want a chance to get in real close contact with local people and see the impact of your efforts, BiblioWorks is definitely a charity that you should consider working with.
