READ Nepal...Excellent job!!!

I just read that READ Nepal bagged $1 million Gates Foundation Award in the himalayan times online. READ (Rural Education and Development) Nepal has in fact done an excellent job in installing libraries in various remote locations of Nepal. They have built 39 community libraries as illustrated here. This page explains about a little procedures of library development. The success of the project is the sustainability of the community library by the locals themself, with timely visits by READ. Their work is indeed the genuine recipient of the Gates Award.
