Sustainable Development Goals
The ONU approved in 2015 the Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development, an opportunity for countries and their societies to embark on a new path to improve everyone's life, leaving no one behind. The diary has 17 Sustainable Development Goals, ranging from the elimination of poverty to the fight against climate change, education, women's equality, the defense of the environment or the design of our cities.
In our day to day, we are working on the following objectives through the actions that we specify below:
Collaborating and promoting alliances in associations such as Neighbors of the Barrio de Maravillas, where with the sale of the Virgen de las Maravillas Stamps we collaborate with the neighborhood food bank.
collaborating with the Mercedarias de Maputo and Africa Directo, in the programs they have in Mozambique to help the albino population to prevent skin cancer and mitigate the vision and mobility problems they have.
Financially supporting the literacy workshops that take place in the Oussouye Library for the women of the town.
Providing this library with books and conducting workshops to encourage reading in it.
Dedicating a large part of our projects to women, to compensate for the initial lack they have, especially in access to education, in literacy workshops in Senegal and signifying them in our book The tales of the hedgehog and other tales of the women of the Sahara.
Placing special importance on recycling in all processes of publishing, printing and distribution of books, on the proper use of water and on the proper management of the elimination of spills of chemical substances, such as inks.
Making sustainable use of the energy resources we have and using renewable energies as a priority.
Encouraging our own jobs to be of quality, and not for that reason economic growth is less.
Not collaborating with companies or societies that do not promote equal opportunities or in which we know that they treat their employees badly.
Through projects, such as the one in which we collaborate in the Teba Diatta Library in Oussouye, Senegal and in the occupational workshop of the Mercedarias in Maputo, Mozambique, helping to acquire computers and promoting access to technology.
Using a local of the San Martín de Porres Foundation, which collaborates with homeless people, as a warehouse for our books, we promote the accessibility of this population to labor and social reintegration.
Collaborating with said organization in the creation of our next book Without direction , thanks to which the homeless people will have a voice and will be able to feel more included and meant.
Favoring internal trade, printing our books in a printing house in Madrid.
Our books are printed on 100% paper from forests managed according to sustainability criteria, which do not deforest the Amazon rainforest, we try to use reams as much as possible so as not to waste paper, and books with any defects are never destroyed, but rather pay off or give away
Promoting every action that is in our power and favors the reduction of climate change such as the use of electric rental cars, the majority distribution through the Post Office and the use of public transport.
By promoting the good management of waste derived from the printing press and not printing in China, we save the maritime transport that this entails.
Our books are printed on 100% paper from forests managed according to sustainability criteria, which do not deforest the Amazon rainforest.
Through books such as The Tales of the Hedgehog and Other Tales of the Women of the Sahara, The tales of the rabbit and other tales of the albino people of Mozambique o Brothers in Syria we want to make visible the thousands of people who are trapped in refugee camps, people who live precariously, people who because of their condition are kidnapped, mutilated and raped on a daily basis and people who live in war. Giving voice to these people, we make visible the problem that exists and we fight so that their situation is regularized and they can live in peace, as any human being deserves.
All our work is based on alliances with external collaborators: Las Mercedarias de Maputo, volunteers from Oussouye, the NGO Zerca y Lejos, the San Martin de Porres Foundation, ALBA- albino aid association, the Bubisher of the Saharan camps, and all the people - friends who accompany us on a daily basis.
