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.

HELP US CHANGE THE FUTURE OF CHILDREN FROM CHICOANA

We still need you!!!

There’s still a lot of work left to be done and funds to be raised.

In Chicoana, the children and their families live in extreme poverty and with the lowest education levels of the country. 

So, let´s build a better future, full of hope, with the creation of a reading corner with 300 new books. 

Reading promotion and literacy are the key to development, educational success and future social insertion of children who live under high social risk.

With your donation, children will read more, the parents will be more committed to their children´s education and the educators will be trained.

Together, we can put a new a book in the hands of  100 children!!!

Thank you so much for being part of this dream.

Please donate now and be part of the change!!

Education is the key

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!
