    (Please reply to host in Spanish]

    In our NGO there are no paid employees, some boys work in street book stalls and earn a commission on the sale.- another part of the sales goes to the edition of books to follow the circuit and the promotion of reading. We have a group (time for sale because we have a hard time keeping it) and in that group we make cinema functions for the blind, audiobooks, and inclusive theater.

    there you can meet us more ..
    At the local level, Córdoba stands out for its culture, it is possibly the city of Argentina that gives more priority to culture from all sectors - museums, colonial houses, history of Che Guevara, works of Eifel, and of course .. Being a Mediterranean city, well the center of the country, it serves as a strategic point to visit in all directions

    en nuestra ONG no hay empleados remunerados, algunos chicos trabajan en puestos de libros callejeros y ganan una comision de la venta.- otra parte de las ventas va a la edicion de libros para que siga el circuito y la fomentacion de la lectura. tenemos un colectivo (hora a la venta porque nos cuesta mucho mantenerlo) y en ese colectivo hacemos funciones de cine para no vidente, audiolibros, y teatro inclusivo.

    alli puedes conocernos mas..
