In 1999, we were able to buy a second-hand US school bus and fit it up as a mobile library with 2000 books, using funds provided by the Basel municipal and rural governments. This bus now has a fixed daily schedule, visiting various schoolsin country areas and also a teacher training college. On the bus the school children can read suitable books selected for them by the librarian and their teachers.

As part of our non-profit project , we help magnify education in Guatemala , through donation of books , desks , school construction .
We have set up 25 school libraries and 7 small mobile libraries in little wooden busses, which are left at a school for two to three weeks depending on the size of the school and then taken to another school. These mini-libraries have about 300 books each. In Nahualá, we have opened a village library with 3000 books and 2 PCs with the help of the Swiss Embassy in Guatemala. Thanks to various companies such as Novartis Basel, Mathys Bettlach, Bison Electronics Malters and Basel rural government, we have been able to adapt used PCs, install Spanish software and put them to good use again in training colleges, libraries and schools.
