Sustainable Development Goals

The ONU approved the Agenda 2030 in 2015 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, which include the elimination of poverty, the fight against climate change, education, women's equality, the defence of the environment and the design of our cities, among others.

 

In our day to day, we are working on the following  objectives through the actions that we specify below: 

1. fin de la pobreza.png

Encouraging and helping in the collection of book donations for the Oussouye Library and sewing machines for the Mercedarias de Maputo workshop

10. reduccion de las desigualdades.jpg

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 labour and social reintegration.  

Collaborating with the 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.

Favouring internal trade, printing our books in a printing house in Madrid. 

12. produccion y consumo responsable.png

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 

13. accion por el clima.png

Promoting every action that is in our power and favours the reduction of climate change such as the use of electric rental cars or public transport and the majority distribution through the Post Office.

15. vida de ecosistemas terrestres.png

16. paz, justicia e instituciones solida

Through books such as Tales of the hedgehog and other stories of the Saharan women, The Rabit tales and other stories of the albinos of Mozambique or 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. By 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. 

17. alianzas para lograr objetivos.png

All our work is based on alliances with external collaborators: The Mercedarian Sister of Maputo, the 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.
