Growing the Kusi Kawsay Library

Rene Franco Salas, one of the founding fathers of the Kusi Kawsay school, is facilitating the Library project. We have high ambitions for the school library to grow and provide a space for students to quench their reading thirst.



Books are so crucial for education, growing, learning and a school environment. It is our dream to see the library flourish with an abundance of books. Each day at school, students come to the Library during their breaks and after hours to discover new stories, pictures and possibilities.

As athe late Uruguayan write Eduardo Galeano said:

“Anyone who reads something that is really worth the trouble to read does not read with impunity. Reading one of those books that breathes when you put it to your ear does not leave you untouched; it changes you, even if only a little bit, it integrates something into you, something that you did not know or had not imagines, and it invites you to seek, to ask questions. And even more, sometimes it can even help you to discover the true meaning of words betrayed by the dictionary of our times.”

To read is to discover, to imagine and travel. We want to provide our student with a wide variety of topics along with a cozy and friendly environment where they can delve into endless different worlds.
