Reading Towards Better Health: Books for Ulithi Library
Although provided text books for school, the students of in the Outer Islands of Yap have few other reading materials.
What we did to help
In November 2004, we donated approximately 150 books to the Ulithi Outer Islands High School library. The books were donated by Mr. & Mrs. William Powell of Honolulu, Hawai’i. These books have been used not only by students, but the entire community of Ulithi. We feel that education is an essential component to the overall health of a community. We hope that improving the Outer Islands High School Library we have provided lasting improvements in education.
