AKP helps build ‘Castle of Books’ in Peru

Since 2008, Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy has helped support Peru’s ‘Children of the Rainbow’ school in the Sacred Valley where more than 220 of the most impoverished, at-risk children in the area receive meals, medical and dental care and an education.

AKP is extremely proud to deepen its engagement with the school, building a brand-new library named “The Castle of Books” made possible by the generous support of A&K guests. The children can now find sanctuary in the reading nooks enjoying a wide variety of titles and improving their comprehension.

Peru is one of the world’s lowest ranked countries for reading comprehension, placed by Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) at 64 out of 70 countries worldwide. In addition to the library construction, the school also started a reading comprehension plan for the students, their families and the community in general. The library is now stocked with 2,000 books for various reading levels.

A&K guests visiting the Sacred Valley have the privileged opportunity of visiting the AKP supported Children of the Rainbow School, interacting with the students and family members, touring the kitchen, garden and classrooms and gaining insight from A&K’s local Philanthropy Coordinator along the way.

A&K Philanthropy is 100% funded by Abercrombie & Kent globally with a donation made to AKP on behalf of every guest travelling.
