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.

You can help us to break the poverty cycle in Chicoana!


We are still aiming to raise funds to build a Reading Corner with around 300 children´s books at the school located in Salta province, Argentina.

The project will benefit 100 at risk children and their families and the teachers and community leaders will be trained. The children and their families live in extreme poverty in a region with one of the lowest education levels of the country.

We have received some funding from our donors but we still need more to fully fund and implement the project:

Please help children at Chicoana in Salta. Let´s give them a chance to break the poverty cycle.

We hope you can help us with your donation to make this a reality!

Thank you so much for your help!

Help us to help!

Education should be the master strategy for poverty eradication. In literacy, everything begins with reading: first learn to read and then learn for a lifetime. The practice of reading favors the development of attention, observation, analysis and reflection. In addition, reading improves life quality, raises productivity and citizen values.

The international test of quality PISA 2012 in reading, located Argentina in the post number 61 of a total of 65 countries assessed. More than 50% of students evaluated do not understand what they read. (OCDE. 2012) The sustained reading of literary texts is a priority objective for the education of children and young people. The daily reading for pleasure is associated with a better performance in schools and to a domain of the reading for the whole life.

Our efforts continue and you can be a part of the change. Help us to bring reading to every child from Chicoana. Help them improve their education and life quality. They need you now!!!

Please donate now and be part of our dream!

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!
