A second year of funding to help pay expenses for the Shola Children's Library has been awarded by the Global Fund for Children in Washington D.C. A small health grant will also allow EBCEF to continue a weekend water-for-health for forty of the poorest neighborhood children who don't have running water in their homes. Volunteer Sarah Fauerbach also wrote a series of health lessons for the children.
Due to a small health grant from the Global Children's Fund in Washington D.C., EBCEF is now able to provide washing on weekends for neighborhood children with no running water. Children gather to wash their clothes, shower and get their hair cared for in a special area of the book center compound.
