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.

Education is the key

Fundacion Leer with children and books
Fundacion Leer with children and books

Access to books, reading habits, reading comprehension, critical thinking, reasoning ability, and analysis are key aspects that we cannot give ourselves the luxury of neglecting. The training of who encourages reading habits and reading competency in our children are critical aspects in order to achieve change.

 This program is intended to contribute to solving the following problems:

 

-          The scarcity of spaces and materials that promote reading and literacy in many of our educational institutions, above all those that are situated in vulnerable communities.

-          The lack of knowledge, tools, and necessary innovative tactics so that educators can conduct a successful reading and literacy promotion process.

-          The grand majority of the children that pertain to low resource communities do not have the necessary stimuli in their early childhood to develop their language and the reading-writing process.

All of these shortages can worsen the literacy process for children if they are not attended to on time, generating serious learning problems that are reflected in school performance.

We need your support to make this project alive for children in Chicoana.

Thank you so mucho for making this project come true!

Francesco joined Fundación Leer in order to make his dream come true: a full literate and Reading Argentina! And he climbed the Aconcangua in January following this dream.

“I´m a strong believer that positive education in its varied forms and the power of opening opportunities are the key to the progress of humanity”, said Francesco.

Franceso helped us raising donations in support of a Children Development Center in Salta. Thank you Francesco for letting us be a part of your dream!!

We still need your contribution to finance  this project in Chicoana that will train 5 operators in charge of children and will build children libraries with 300 new books benefiting 100 at risk children and their families. Your help is so important!

Like Franceso, you can be part of the change. Let Francesco inspire us all.

Helping los chicos read more!

Francesco

Francesco is italian. And most important of all, he is a dreamer, like many of us.

And his dream is from childhood: climbing mountains and helping foster education for children around the world. The name of his dream is « Summit Stories »,  a journey across the seven continents and their highest peaks to help bring education opportunities to underprivileged youth and local communities. 

Like Francesco, let´s dream as high as possible !!! Let´s dream on new books and improving literacy opportunities for each child in Argentina !!! Your help is so important in making this dream come true!!!

« When I climb Aconcagua in January, I plan to support Fundacion Leer, the leading non-profit organization in Argentina that provides reading opportunities to under-privileged children in Argentina.

Remember when you were a child and there was storytime in your day or night? Remember that favorite book of yours?

Help create those tender and meaningful memories to children who do not have those moments.

Unfortunately, many children don’t have this opportunity in Argentina, with devastating impact on the development of their language, reading and writing skills and school performance.

By contributing to Fundacion Leer (Argentina's leading early literary foundation), you will be helping children to be prepared with the necessary abilities and enthusiasm to learn!

Your contribution will finance a project in the Salta region to train operators in charge of children and to build children libraries and provide books for the children to choose and read.

It’s a wonderful program and I am looking forward to meeting and exceeding the goal we set to support Fundacion Leer and help Los Chiquitos read more.

Help spread storytime to Argentina. They will remember it as much as you do :)

As Mt Aconcagua is 6,962 meters high, help me raise a dollar for each meter in support of Fundacion Leer. »

Thank you! Grazie! Gracias!
Francesco
