The Ministry of Culture of Peru has implemented a "Window for Multilingual Assistance" to serve citizens, who speak Awajun and Quechua languages.

The measure will allow native-language speakers to access services and file paperwork, as well as complaints against damage caused to cultural heritage, property invasion and discrimination.

In this framework, members of those communities will be allowed to submit documents in their corresponding languages.

Similarly, the Window will provide information on issues related to the Deputy Ministry of Interculturality. Likewise, it will guide citizens, who desire to apply for film, art competitions and other cultural events convened by the Culture Ministry.
