Donate Books and Help Improve Literacy
In Biblioburro: The Donkey Library, Luis Soriano helps bring books to children who regularly do not have access to them. Learn how you can support Biblioburro, donate books to international and local communities, and assist local literacy initiatives.
Investigate U.S. foreign policy related to Colombia, its paramilitary forces and the violence experienced by civilians. Discuss what you think U.S. policy should be and share your opinions (and evidence for them) with your elected representatives, in letters to the editor, on blogs and so on.
Soriano recites the poetry of Nicaraguan poet Rubén Darío. Find more Darío poetry to share with your group, class, congregation or community. Or use the film as a prompt to write your own poetry about your dreams for the future or about people who inspire you.
