SIL Peru, a branch of SIL International, is an association of volunteers working on behalf of Peru’s ethnic minorities under the auspices of the Ministry of Education since 1946. SIL Peru publishes its research on Peru's languages and cultures, as well as other domains. As appropriate to the language community, SIL also promotes literacy, health, and community development projects among speakers of those languages, as well as translation of materials of high moral value into the vernacular.
