Background of Open Windows
I became involved with Open Windows 15 years ago, when it had 2 small rooms, 300 books, and one part time teacher. Today we are a major educational center with 10,000 books, 5 teachers, a modern computer lab, and a scholarship program that allows over 40 kids to go to high school and beyond.
The work you give us (over $250,000.00 in the past 10 years) has a great impact on a community that has few educational opportunities. For example a $400.00 painting job pays for a full year's high school scholarship, a $350.00 painting job pays a teacher's salary for one month, a $1,600.00 job pays for the total cost of the library for a week.
