Dear friends,

Since last June 2013, we have been working to provide 198,000 students in rural Colombia with our Learning Guides. Through an agreement with the Secretary of Education of the Department of Antioquia, we received the funding for such an ambitious project. We are very happy to have achieved such a great accomplishment that's currently triggering for more municipalities to demand these quality education materials.However, we want to announce that we will close this project on GlobalGiving to open a new one.

Looking for new ways to have a positive impact on society, we have decided to improve the quality of education of a small 70 student rural school in a town called Zipacon. These students need Learning Guides, but their teachers also need training. Their school also lacks major support materials for learning process.

If you would like to continue supporting our work promoting better education and, therefore better life opportunities for children in Colombia, please donate to this new project on this link:
