Grassroots Organization Asking for Help to Ship Books, Computers and Other Library Materials to Haiti, Jamaica and Nicaragua

Stamford, CT – After dedicated teams of volunteers have crisscrossed the Fairfield County to collect thou- sands of library materials for the UNESCO Center for Global Friendship’s literacy programs, they are now dili- gently helping raise $20,000 to ship them to their intended destinations

Angelucci Manigat, Jr., the executive director of UNESCO Center for Global Friendship, is satisfied with the initial response of supporters from Stamford, Darien, Norwalk, Westport, Fairfield, Southport, Bridgeport, Milford and Trumbull.

“We have received 8,000 English, Spanish and French books, some computers and printers for community and school libraries in Haiti,

Jamaica and Nicaragua,” Manigat reported.

We are now in the second phase of this project, which is to raise the funding nec- essary to get these donations to underprivileged book lovers in Latin America and the Caribbean this summer,” Manigat explained.

Based in Stratford, UNESCO Center for Global Friendship, Inc. is a tax-exempt non- profit organization, officially recognized by the U.S. Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations. It develops cultural programs for libraries in the United States, and provides educational materials to deprived readers in the Caribbean and Latin America.
