Join The Library of The Jungle in the AMAZON (Perú)

We are a small Humanitarian Association located in the region of Madre de Dios, 47 km from Puerto Maldonado in the Peruvian Amazon jungle.

Three years ago we started helping the most needy people in the area, particularly children. For that we created a Toy Library where children come to learn English, read, play and just be children.

We also carry out campaigns on special dates such as Christmas, in which we have benefited more than 70 children.

Items needed: - Board games. - Children's Books. - Toys for our smallest ones. - School Supplies in general. - Summer clothes for children from 6 to 18 years. - Shoes for Kids. - 1 Sewing Machine (We know it's a bit heavy, but you are strong!). - Single Bed Blankets. - Towels. - LOADS OF LOVE :)
As a VISITOR we would like to share with you: As a VISITOR we want to tell you about our projects, we can offer accommodation for you while you participate in our activities with a special discount for coming with Bagshare.
