What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Chad/Darfur Reading Relief

The program provides comprehensive support for reading in the Bredjing, Treguine, and Gaga refugee camps in eastern Chad, home to nearly 70,000 refugees from Darfur, and in more than a dozen nearby "host" Chadian villages.  We work in partnership with CORD, the British NGO managing education programs in these places as an implementing partner of UNHCR and UNICEF.  Program components include: library construction, school construction, solar lighting, reading glasses, multilingual dictionaries, school supplies, textbooks, and English, French, and Arabic literacy material.  Of the refugees, about 20,000 are students, and, of the villagers, about 19,000 are enrolled in literacy classes, primary school, or pre-school.  Details about each program component can be found on our website, www.bookwish.org.
