One of the main entities of the Network of Rural Libraries of Cajamarca is the Council of Elders.
This body is formed, in principle, by the veterans and oldest members of our organization, understanding - obviously - that wisdom not only comes with the years, but also with experience and affection.
The Council of the Elders ensures the good treatment between us and respect for our conception and our principles; gives advice in difficult situations and supports when there are doubts about the crucial and ethical contents of our association. It advises - in a cultured and wise way - how we can solve critical problems or situations taking into account the teachings of our grandparents, in a coherent and consistent way.
For several years, the Council of Elders did not meet, since its members could not attend meetings and assemblies in Cajamarca - whether for personal, health or age reasons.
At the beginning of February, the Assembly renewed the Council of Elders, confirming as members Jacinto Aguilar (from the community of Carrizal, in Cajabamba) and José Isabel Ayay (from Chilimpampa, Cajamarca), and greeting as new members Antonio Vílchez (from San Isidro, San Marcos) and Marcos Florián (from Taya el Colal, Contumazá).
Thank you, grandparents and parents of ours: with the greatest respect.
