Chicagoan and Global Activist, Debra Gittler is back on our Global Activism segment to tell us how her group, ConTextos, has expaned its literacy programs into El Salvador prisons for the benefit of prisoners and guards alike.
We’ll talk with Wauconda couple, Steve and Paulie Kutschat. They have a deep love for books. After a trip to Africa, the Kutschat’s founded Bookfriends International, a nonprofit providing educational resources to secondary school-age children in Africa. Bookfriends gives the children text books, library books and reference materials that are in desperately short supply in their local villages.
