The past week, Little Known Help Zone had the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua and meet with two organizations located in Granada.
We first visited Puedo Leer Biblioteca, a quaint, adorable library with the most enjoyable reading space and the kindest people. We donated rewards for incentivized reading and books in Spanish.
The next day, we stopped by La Esperanza Granda to donate a variety of books, craft supplies, and school supplies.
It was wonderful collaborating with new organizations and meeting the people of Nicaragua.
Little Known Help Zone invites you to come to King Koffee in Emmaus, PA, located at 506 Chestnut St, Emmaus, PA 18049 for a fundraiser night. From 6-10, there will be coffee, tea, live performances, and crafts and art for sale, all benefiting Little Known Help Zone. This event is free to enter but all donations are appreciated! Hope to see you there!
In just a week, Little Known Help Zone will be in Granada, Nicaragua, meeting with organizations for future collaborations and will also be delivering supplies!
First is Puedo Leer Library. The library is a wonderful organization that has several library locations and works to put locations and book cabinets in rural schools. We will be donating spanish language books and small prize rewards to encourage their reading program. Learn more at http://www.puedoleerlibrary.com/
We also will be donating to La Esperanza Granada. This organization works with children to improve education and their lives. We will be donating workbooks, clothes, toys, and school crafting supplies. Read more at http://www.la-esperanza-granada.org/.

While in Mexico this past week, LKHZ donated a large bag of books to KKIS, Keeping Kids in School. This organization donates large amounts of school supplies (over 2,000 bags) to students in Mexican schools, as well as a box of supplies for the teachers. These English library books, donated by Salisbury Middle School last year during a trip to El Salvador, will help children practice reading English at school and also serves as a great exposure to younger kids.
Check out KKIS to learn more about their amazing work!
LKHZ will be traveling to Mexico in a few weeks and making sure to give back while in the area. When in Playa del Carmen, LKHZ will be donating the remaining book donations from last year’s trip to Keep Kids in School Project (KKIS). This organization works hard to both keep kids in school and educate them in English. The English books will be great practice to read.
Also while there, LKHZ will be helping to pack backpacks of school supplies for once the school season resumes in Fall. Stay tuned for pictures from the visit, as well as upcoming projects!
