Now that we have the piercing machine, what next?

One of the most pressing problems in Burkina Faso is the low rate of girls schooling. By providing reading and mentoring, village libraries have a large role to play in keeping girls in schools. FAVL envisions a couple of programs. First, a Read with your Little Sister program encourages older girls to bring younger girls to the library to read to them. Second, after school homework clubs encourage older girls to tutor and mentor younger girls. Each of these programs will provide incentives for both older and younger age students to participate.
