In honor of March Madness, here’s a great photo from our Digital Library. Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer shared how she used basketball in her community:

This photo was taken in April 2011 in Guatemala. As an outlet and self-esteem builder, I started a basketball league for teenage girls from surrounding areas. This picture shows some of the girls wearing their newly donated jerseys from a family member in the states who works in the recreation department.
