Happy World Book Day!

In the rural town of Robe, Ethiopia, the meager library at the local school was temporarily displaced to make room for 4 inclusive education classrooms. A year later, we were happy to assist @christian_horizons Global in the building of a new fully accessible library along with a truckload of books to help fill it. One of the books being delivered that day was "Inclusive Education: A Practical Guide for Schools'', written in the local language by Dr. Alemayehu Teklemariam, Associate Professor in Special Needs and Inclusive Education, Addis Ababa University. Ryan's Rays was happy to provide funding for the printing of the first 2000 copies of this book in order to provide a valuable resource to teachers across Ethiopia on Inclusive Education.

"Free and fair access to books – to reading – is a right and one we should fight for.”

On this #givingtuesday we are celebrating all that you made possible throughout this challenging year.

Thanks to you, not only were we able to celebrate the opening of our first inclusive education classroom in Guatemala, but we were also able to quickly shift our resources to provide Covid-19 relief to our partners in Ethiopia and Guatemala. Recently, your support allowed us to provide enough funding to provide Covid Relief Food Bags for approximately 350 families. This relief is coming at a critical time as communities in Guatemala are dealing with the devastation caused by Hurricanes Eta and Iota and Ethiopia is in the midst of a civil war.

Your support is providing much needed nutritional relief and hope to these communities, and we are so grateful for each and every one of you who continue to partner with us.

If you would still like to contribute to our relief efforts in honour of #givingtuesday please visit RyansRays.org/donate .
