IBBY Canada is delighted to be twinning with IBBY Dominican Republic (DR) for 2021 and 2022.
Twinning is a program promoted by IBBY that allows for a special, and mutually beneficial, relationship between two national sections and includes supporting fees — and the development of programs and services that support the mission of IBBY: bringing books and children together.
Géraldine de Santis, President of IBBY Dominican Republic, was a special guest at the IBBY Canada board meeting in June 2021 where she spoke to the formation of the section in 2018 — and the work they have underway, including:
Many thanks, Géraldine and all at IBBY DR for twinning with us! We look forward to working with you over the next two years — and sharing ideas and experiences that strengthen both our sections.
And thank you to Liz Page, Executive Director of IBBY, for the introduction!
