More access to education, more opportunities

Centro RIA Texcoco

Hello everyone, 

We are happy to inform that we've been very bussy working on expanding our impact to more communities and hopefully all around Mexico. By the end of this year we will be opening 25 more digital libraries in the poorest communities in the State of Mexico (all throughout the periphery of Mexico City). 

Also, the model of we've created in the Learning and Innovation Network (or RIA), is now expanding to different parts of the country. This model, seeks to impact as many children, youth and adults as possible by offering educational resources they can use to solve their every day needs and problems. 

This is a new opportunity for us to apply every lesson learned in the past and create new stratergies. We are working as a team and listening what eveyone wants to say in order to improve our work and help more people. 

We also want to share with you that trought out this period we've reached the numer 500,000 user. We think that is such a big number! Behind this number, there are 500,000 stories, endless efforts and a shared hope to be a better person and help the people surround us to have a better quality of life. 

Thanks to your donations to this project, we've given more than 15 100% scholarships to the people that need it more. With your help, 10 kids that couldn't pay for their course were able to finish at the same time than their friends and classemates.  

Thank you!

From the eyes of the children

While learning how to use a computer and how to create Word documents, children in the Learning and Innovation Network (RIA) explain how they arrived to the RIA and why they like it.

RIA’s learning experience from the voice of the children that you’ve helped.

My name is Ana Paola López González. I’m in 11 years old and study the 5th grade. I knew about the RIA because of my aunt Carmen studied here for two months. In the RIA you can learn a lot. My cousin Andrea and my aunty Carmen also come to classes. I like to come to my course Expedition because I get to learn what I did not know. I don’t have a computer at home and don’t have any connection to internet. I didn’t know how to use the computer before coming to RIA.  I like it here and my facilitator is very active.

My name is Diego Estrada González and I study 5th grade at the Primary School. I’m 10 years old and RIA gave me a scholarship to take a course during Easter. My cousins invited me to the RIA courses because I didn’t understand Mathematics.  Me and my cousin come to computing courses, we really like it and I will continue to come to do our homework and research for school.

MY NAME IS ROCIO HERNANDEZ ARIADNE OJEDA. I study at the school “Niños Héroes”. I’ve been coming to the RIA in Ixtlahuaca for 2 years. My mom brought me. I like the internet, the Expedition program and the Easter course.  I like my courses a lot: I learn many new things like Science, Math and Art.
