A Radio with Andean children
In June 2003, a multidisciplinary team of educators, anthropologists, and communicators designed the innovative proposal “A Radio at the school” to make a civic contribution while protecting the value of a living heritage from the classrooms. Pukllasunchis brought the radio to public schools for children and the Quechua community to affirm their identity, and express their knowledge, feelings and experiences.
