Fundacion Leer

Fundacion Leer promotes reading and literacy among children in Argentina, creating lasting and positive effects in their personal development and helping them enter the social fabric. Since reading skills benefit educational processes, we intervene early so as to close the achievement gap between at-risk communities and their affluent peers. We offer globally proven reading programs to urban/rural schools, libraries, hospitals, and community centers, meeting vulnerable children's literacy needs.

So little from you can make such a big difference!

In Chicoana, more than 50% of head households haven´t finished primary education.

Poverty and exclusion are part of the environment where these children develop. Without role models and opportunities to escape this situation. Education and training are keys to breaking the cycle of poverty, as well as building social stability. Education still remains the key for empowering women. To accomplish this task, Fundación leer will train the teachers in the area of early literacy encouraging them and the families to get involved in their children's education.  

Through this project, Fundación Leer expects that the institution will acquire autonomy to implement a program in this area with new resources and materials, and it will have female leaders trained in the field of early literacy, with the ability to support and advise families.

Your donation will allow us to be able to implement this project and impact on the life of children.

 

Please, help the children from Chicoana and be part of the change. We need you now!

We need you now, children in Chicoana cant wait!

We are in the final countdown.... We really need your help now!

In a few weeeks we´ll be closing this project but we need your donation now to raise the 100% of it.

The whole project includes:

  • Teacher training.
  • Pedagogical advice and technical assistance.
  • Deliver materials to support the school.
  • Communicate the guidelines of the program.
  • The selection of books.
  • Create and maintain the Reading Corner.

We share a testimony gathered during a training in another school from Salta and who could implement the whole project: 

“The training allowed me to learn new ways to work productively as I develop as a teacher. I also greatly appreciate that the foundation and its coordinator chose us.” School Nº 4233 - Las Llanas, Salta.

Children in Chicoana are in need and education is the only way to get out from poverty and social exclusion. These vulnerable families have poor access to health/educational services and literacy materials.

We need you know! Please donate to make this project alive! and a new dream will come tru!
