Visit Tallers de Poesía at
Talleres de Poesia is a group of writers and volunteers who organize an annual poetry festival in El Salvador. This year is our 3rd year and we are asking for support from our friends and family. Our goal is bring 4 bi-lingual children's book authors to El Salvador where they offer poetry readings and writing workshops to approximately 800 children from all corners of the country. We also include 4 Salvadoran authors in the festival. It is a 3-day event held at the National Library in San Salvador. We work with 2 non-profit organizations in El Salvador that coordinate bringing the children to the library on buses from all over the countryside. Last years event was a great success, with media coverage and many children in attendance.Our committee fund raises to provide the following:
(800) Tote bags for all the children in attendance
(800) books, pencils, bookmarks to include in tote bag
(800) lunches and refreshments for the children airfare for participating authors decorations for the festival: banners, balloons, mascots
We thank you for the opportunity to share our event with everyone and will truly appreciate the financial support for this wonderful project. Please take a minute to visit our active website and make a contribution to this wonderful event. Together and with poetry we can make a change in the lives of the Salvadoran children.
