A project to fund literary arts endeavors that would incorporate creative and extracurricular English language classes and activities for younger soon to be students in ChaCha Poyas, Peru. In these classes and activities the main focus and goal of instruction would be to enable students to comprehend simple children's books written in English, and then create their own, also completely in English. Also in consideration are ways to have the end products published so that the proceeds can be returned to the new San Francisco Language School, and its students. These funds would be directed to affording other future projects akin to this one, as well as for scholarships for students who can't afford classes. Initially, enough funding for all materials, from the children's books, to the paper, pens, pencils, and art supplies it would take for the children to make their own is needed. A hands on project like this will not only be a lot of fun for the students but will serve greatly to their actual retainment of their English lessons. We all learn better when we do! These kids WILL walk away from this project being able to express themselves in English on a rather simple level, at the least (IE My name is, I live here, I am this age, I like this, I do that). Hoping that while this project would afford students an opportunity to learn in a way they may not have before, it will also provide a window through which their voices can be heard in other places in the world where it might not ever have had a chance to be. Also, it will provide them with an opportunity to preserve something of themselves as well as their culture, and in passing on their works to the rest of the world more education and insight into the lives of the indigenous children of the Andes, spoken *BY and FOR* them would be available than is present to us now.
