This is a Project that seeks the spontaneous motivation to read books with children and teenagers. This is a free community program that we do at parks, fairs, hospitals, cultural centers, etc.
What exactly do we do?
We bring books to children and teenagers for spontaneous reading. The Puriq Biblioteca is a library collection in a shape of retablo (Ayacuchan artistic altarpiece), so that we also promote the cultural identity.
We seek to be a friendly and safe alternative for children. Here, children and teenagers can learn more and have access to books in a fun and adventurous way.
Currently, we are working in three locations in Ayacucho: At Adulto Mayor Park Enace, Ayacucho; at Children’s park Jesús Nazareno in the district of Sarhua, a rural community of Quechua speakers.
How do we do?
- We let the children and teenagers borrow the books and read then and there.
- We help children with reading as needed.
- We promote cultural activities and games in the public places, where the participation is open and spontaneous.
With the support of Sharon Presbyterian Church we seek to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities in Huanta. We do this through empowerment and teaching them artisan skills and self-employment. They develop skills of knitting, fabric, Ayacuchan style embroidery. The sales of these products help sustain their families.
Thanks to our partners of Sharon Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC, we can help families who are going through difficult times. We identify a person or family and then we provide: clothing, shoes, glasses, walkers, wheelchair, blankets, roofing, etc. This is to show tangible ways to be in solidarity.
