While Cappuccino Club’s 2009 Calendar miraculously (well, it was thanks to YOUR support!!) bore fruit and brought water to Uganda, the 2010 edition by the same miracle (your support again, THANKS!!) turned into a library in Bolivia.
With a great release party and the calendar sold out in a few days the amazing sum of 10.786,51 Euros could be raised. The money was solemnly handed to Dr. Miriam Rothbacher, who then brought it to El Alto and launched the construction works enseguida.
By now the biggest part of the work has already been completed, books bought (thanks to another donation by the United Nations) and the “challa”, the Bolivian version of a topping-out party (or Firstfeier as we Austrians know it), celebrated.
Very soon these books will move into their new home and help people of a deprived and forgotten area to educate themselves and thus maybe escape the ominous and horribly real poverty trap.
THANKS AGAIN to everybody who supported this project, sponsors, artists, friends and everyone who bought a calendar or had fun at our party! Muchísimas gracias a todos!
