Welcome to our new blog!
We've created a place online where we can post information, news, and updates about the things we do at the Bartica Learning Resources Centre (BLRC).
Here's a little information about us:
Bartica is a small town of 20,000 people and rests on a peninsula where the Cuyuni and Mazaruni rivers join the mighty Essequibo (the largest river in Guyana). The BLRC is a library/resources centre at gateway to the interior of Guyana.
Our centre is run and operated by two teachers:
Tr. Angela Douglas - who is the coordinator for this center
Tr. Naomi Benn - who is the assistant coordinator and technical adviser
These two wonderful people are supported by Peace Corps, VSO, and World Teach volunteers from around the world.
Currently, we are raising money to purchase new computers for the centre so that we can begin to teach teachers and students how to improve education by using a computer.
Here is the link to our donation site if you are interested in contributing:
Computer Learning Resource Center Grant
We hope you will check back regularly to learn more about the BLRC and to see the kinds of things we do here for the schools and community members of Bartica!
All the best,
The members of the Bartica Learning Resources Centre
