Green Libraries

SiKanda promotes the establishment of orchards and Green Libraries in public elementary schools and secondary schools in the Municipality of Zaachila.


In order to encourage reading, foster a culture of recycling and promote social cohesion, SiKanda promotes the creation of vegetable gardens and Green Libraries in the primary and secondary public schools of the Municipality of Zaachila. In this way, boys, girls, and young people have a clean, safe, and fun place built by themselves, to enjoy reading. For its construction over 8 thousand PET bottles and 10 thousand TetraPak are needed. Thanks to the support of the Techamos una Mano Foundation, which facilitates the model of each construction, the participation of mothers, parents, students, teachers and the neighboring community is encouraged.
