Dear friends,

Fundacion Escuela Nueva (FEN) is glad to announce two major achievements in our project to improve the Quality of Education for 198,000 Children in Antioquia, Colombia.

1. We have signed an agreement with the Escuela Nueva Teacher Network in Antioquia! Through this agreement, we will be able to work with 40 EN teachers, who are defined as multipliers due to their role in spreading and supporting other teachers in the region working with the EN model.

2. Last week, we ordered Learning Guides (FEN's textbooks adapted to our education model) for 198,000 children in 4,000 rural schools. These materials will be sent to the schools by the end of January 2013!

FEN wants to ask again for your support: please, donate and spread the word

By donating, you will help us address the specific needs of these children. With adequate resource, we will provide students with language and math workbooks to practice reading comprehension and problem solving skills. Only 2 out of 10 students in Colombia understand what they read, and only 1 out of 10 students is able to solve math problems. Your contribution will make a big difference for the youth of Colombia!

Best wishes,

Fundación Escuela Nueva
