This project, run by ACIES, has 3 lines of action:

  • develop the capacity of youth and children to express themselves in drawing and words
  • work with rural women to explore cultural expression through reading, storytelling and handicrafts
  • develop and share practices and strategies in alternative education with volunteers and teachers

Participants come from both the rural hamlet of Pomabamba and from an underserved urban neighbourhood in Cajamarca. The project reflects the Indigenous Andean culture of the region.
