Partnership Projects 2017

Grants Program

The 9th Annual Partnership Dinner was a big success at Don Juan's Mexican Restaurant, courtesy of Kaylee Quezada, Azerbaijan and her husband Eder, son of the owners. Thank you both.

Through the spirited presentations of Ellen Siler, Jamaica, Nina Frank, Moldova, and Barbara Gubbin, Ghana, we/they raised money respectively for a Philippines Summer Camp for autistic children ($340.00), Moldova Newspaper Project ($350.00) and Uganda Let Girls read African Literature ($450.00). The Florida Times Union, honored Barbara with a front page story on her work to Make the Duval County Library System Great again. Unfortunately, the Uganda Literature project was unexpectedly cancelled in November, so we redirected the $450.00 to the Primary School Library and Learning Center in Zambia.
