There are 1500 students in the secondary school in Akrpo-Misserete, Benin, yet only 300 of these students have the required textbooks needed for school. The economy is based on agriculture and small commerce. One vital dependency that is fulfilled is education. This project's primary objective is to buy 2000 textbooks, then rent these books to students for a small fee.

This project was born after a round-table discussion between students and teachers, in which the lack of textbooks was cause for disillusionment among the students.The program will allow students who do not have access to textbooks to rent them for a small fee from the school library. The money collected will be re-invested with the library to purchase new textbooks.

First time I was a PCV was in 1964 in Malaysia VII.  I worked in Sarawak in the 3rd Division as a PEMS.  This was on -the-job teacher training in a rural/remote schools + urban schools in Sibu, Sarikei and Kuching. All teachers in training had passed their Cambridge Exam but did not have enough money to go to University; training in this position would get them free University admission.  The second time was in Health as a Medical Social Worker at the University Hosital of the West Indies. I worked in a "sensitive" area and trained Jamaican SW's in acquiring the special skills needed to work in his particular area. UHWI is the Medical Training Hospital for the Caribbean and there were Social Workers from other islands also in the program.  This was a earmarked program.
