One of the activities held at Nukanti´s community center in Cazucá, on the outskirts of Bogotá, is a reading workshop with children from the local school. The reading workshops, implemented in collaboration with local organization Lecturas Compartidas, are held every Tuesday with children from 6 to 12 years old. The goal is to stimulate children´s imagination and creativity through reading and books, and to teach them life values and social skills.
Last Tuesday the children had a lot of fun as they learned about different folkloric myths and legends from Colombia. Then some of them dressed up as the main characters and the others had to guess who was who. One hour for each group was just not enough!
