Donations of Literacy Materials in English Needed!

A group of students is traveling to Cali-Colombia this May with Professors Walker, museum studies, and Montoya, Foreign languages and Literatures. This is part of an exploratory project to develop interdisciplinary courses abroad in the near future. As part of the activities the group will visit “Fundación Able” and “Colegio La Fontaine” in a less privileged neighborhood in Cali. Their particularity is being the first and only bilingual education program for lower socio-economic populations in the area. They believe that teaching English would open opportunities for all. We are collecting literacy materials in English to donate to this foundation and school.   Please, if you have early reading books, flashcards, literacy computer games, color pencils and illustrated books, markers, etc, we will be collecting them until May 9th. Contact MC. Montoya@oneonta.edu for pick up or please bring to Foreign Languages and Literatures department in Schumacher 300.
