CHALLENGE: Vilcabamba had no library and few books. 

The kids of Vilcabamba, Ecuador have had little access to exciting books. Children rarely develop a passion for reading in these circumtances.  What a shame and a real barrier to success!



Being the Positive Force. 

We’ve created a library for children 

in need!

When youngsters are given the opportunity, encourgement and environment to read for pleasure, develop relationships with people from other cultures, and also, to make art — they grow in new and magical ways.   


Biblioteca para Niños de Vilcabamba (BNV) exists for the purpose of broadening kids’ access to books, literature, cross-

cultural experiences and the arts.
