Books That Release

Many years ago, when travelling to conferences and cooperation projects by about 20 countries of Latin America, I found that many schools teaching in Latin America and other centres of higher education lacked good libraries. The soul came to me the ground how could train as teachers and directors of education without books to read? Upon returning to Madrid, I sent letters to my friends at the University asking for novels, theatre, poetry, art, film, essays, dictionaries and encyclopedias which do not already used. Thus was born the solidarity book project. Without funding for processing the books, destroy the unsuitable and organize 3 libraries. 000 or 5.

000 copies to be sent in containers. It has not been easy, but they did it because they felt the need for the commitment in the service. While it is not easy to obtain resources for their transport, since they show no wounds, tears or misery. Thanks to the help of many volunteers and the warehouses and spaces that lent us some institutions We have brought forward this formidable company. The book of solidarity is one of the solidary OSC for development programmes.

It is a project that promotes the necessary educational development for global progress. The beneficiaries are training centres, schools of primary and secondary teaching, universities, popular libraries, centres for young people in a situation of social exclusion, and schools that need it and that we can help, although we consider priority those dedicated to the training of teachers and professors. Over the 10 years of operation of the program, multitude of library requests have been received. For reasons of infrastructure and freight costs, we give priority to the most disadvantaged regions and to those centers that have basic conditions of installation of a library and to ensure the viability of the project, security of the books and the good use of them, without censorship or obstacles.
