Reader to Reader Helps with Literacy Support in Bolivia

KUSIKUY is proud to be partnering with Reader to Reader to bring a free donation of brand new books to the children of Arani, Bolivia.  

Arani knitters will use the books to help improve literacy in their town.

A small colonial town an hour's drive from the city of Cochabamba, Arani has little internet access and is plagued by drought, poverty and migration.

Almost 30% of the town's original 3,500 inhabitants have moved elsewhere in search of jobs and a better livelihood.

However Arani is also the home of one of KUSIKUY's finest knitting groups, La Imillia.

The La Imillia knitters will be the ones directing the book donations and distribution.

In December KUSIKUY will bring more books computers and technical games, to share with local students.

In addition to books for children, Reader to Reader is donating a Spanish-language collection of business marketing books that have been requested in order to help support the educational needs of local entrepreneurs.
