Help me give my students a broader world view through the purchase of books!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our middle school students are kind, curious, and generous individuals who seek exposure to the diverse global perspectives that exist in our world. Our small school community is nestled in the rolling hills of Northwest Connecticut. Although our students are lucky to live in such a bucolic setting, they truly need exposure to varied international perspectives. Our goal is to foster a genuine curiosity about the world they live in, as well as to develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of cultures, opinions, and practices of those who do not live in our tiny corner of the world. We hope to accomplish this by offering our students a broad selection of narrative literature and informational text in order to give a voice to those who live very different lives than our students.
In order to offer the volume and scope of diversity we need to break the "one story" dilemma, we need donors to fund our class libraries.
We greatly appreciate your support in creating our book collection to develop self-awareness, empathy, and understanding through stories that help our students see the world through the eyes of others.
A large and diversified book collection will encourage the development of self-awareness, empathy, and understanding through stories that help our students see the world through the eyes of others! So often our students are only exposed to the single narrative to represent whole groups of people.
Through the purchase of a variety of genres and authors, these books will promote a genuine curiosity for our students about the world they live in, as well as to guide them to develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of cultures, opinions, and practices of those who do not live in our tiny corner of the world.
