Digitizing & Preserving Nicaragua's Literacy Campaign Archive

The Literacy Project is proud to be a collaborating partner with the Instituto de Historia de Nicaragua y Centroamérica and The School for International Training – Nicaragua Program in a major project to digitize thousands of oral history audio cassettes held in the IHNCA archives. Fulbright scholar Becca Cooley will be traveling down to Managua in just a few days to work on this project for the next few months. She is currently raising funds to support this project and is very close to her goal – help her get there!
