Library Project

The Hummingbird Reading Club is designed to offer underprivileged Peruvian children the opportunity to learn to love reading! It is currently active in two libraries: Calca TAE and Huyro MDI (Both were financed by Luciano Schiavo , through the Hummingbird Collective) and is planning to launch a mobile library to travel to remote communities where there is a chronic lack of infrastructure. We are always looking for new ideas and ways to grow!

The Hummingbird Collective, working with the local Municipality, equipped the library in Huyro which was opened in January 2012. The library, the first in the town, is now regularly used by local children.

After initial challenges, the library is now a huge success, with children queuing up to enter the library some days.
