Video of La Cometa Lectora (The Reading Kite)

[Versión en castellano a seguir…]
In December of 2014, I made a video to document the launch of the reading promotion program ‘La Cometa Lectora‘ (‘The Reading Kite’) that was implemented into Project Chiclayo educational programs in September. At last, the video is available for viewing on YouTube! I was lucky to be able to present it at an NGO event hosted by Save the Children.

En el diciembre del 2014, hice un video para documentar el inicio del programa de la promoción de la lectura ‘La Cometa Lectora’, que fue implementado en los programas educativos del Proyecto Chiclayo en setiembre. Por fin, ¡el video está disponible para mirar en YouTube! Tuve la suerte de poder presentarlo en un evento de ONG organizado por la ONG internacional Save the Children.

‘Cometa’ visits will be starting soon. Several children and mothers are asking when they will begin, and I can’t wait. This week I have been very busy organizing and beginning two art workshops (one for drawing and one for painting) with children and adolescents from Centro Esperanza’s Project Chiclayo programs as well as programs in Chosica del Norte and San Borja (nearby rural towns). This afternoon I will be headed to La Ladrillera for a drawing workshop with the village’s little artists.

As for ‘Cometa’ visits, I am excited to introduce children and mothers to new books that have been purchased thanks to funding from Chalice. (We found some very interesting books with creative designs that the kids will love!) Special thanks to two individual donors who donated funds specifically for ‘La Cometa’; we are still deciding on the best way to spend the money.

Have a relaxing and fun weekend! Thanks for reading 🙂
