With the ultimate goal of encouraging the habit of good reading, Peruvian Union University (UPeU) recently launched its 2022 literacy initiative at a school in Carapongo, Peru, in the Lurigancho district, east of the capital city of Lima.
The project, titled, “Literacy and Education Moving Forward,” seeks to help low-income women in the area learn how to read or improve their reading skills, leaders behind the initiative said. Classes are taught by senior students majoring in education at UPeU, in a joint effort with the nearby Chosica municipal government, organizers explained.
