BRINGING EDUCATION TO EVERY CORNER

The COVID-19 pandemic surprised us all, and one of the challenges was to find a way to bring education to all the corners where we work, without putting our beneficiaries at risk.

Our methodology "United from home" sends to each home, the work guidelines that children must develop from their own home. The experience has been enriching because parents have also become more involved in the children's education.

The approach and work helped the school academic indexes to be maintained, and in many of the other cases, it increased, because our playful methodology facilitated teaching-learning.

To continue supporting the literacy of children in this region, we need to continue to have your collaboration, and if you are not part of our project yet, we invite you to join.

Together we can transform education.

HISTORICAL MOMENT IN EDUCATION IN THE REGION

The literacy program promoted by the Un Mundo organization believes in education as an agent of change and development for all its beneficiaries, that is why a historic alliance has been made between Un Mundo and the Municipality of the city of La Ceiba through from the signing of an agreement to grant scholarships to 100 low-income rural girls with student scholarships, which will open up many opportunities in the short, medium and long term.

With this agreement, the educational quality of the region will be strengthened, and work will continue on the literacy and leadership of the beneficiaries of the programming.

Un Mundo thanks each of the people who with their valuable collaboration make these dreams come true, and asks you to please share these experiences with your friends to continue expanding our impact and coverage.

EDUCATING IN TIMES OF PANDEMIC

The happiness of the children is drawn on his face through his smile full of innocence, but full of dreams to fulfill.

The Un Mundo organization has continued its work despite the pandemic, and has been able to reach the most remote parts of the communities. Every week around 300 work guides are distributed in a community mailbox in each locality, and each child is able to collect without risk of contagion, and then carry out work from home.

The work material contains instructional guides, stories prepared by the organization related to living or the current situation, which makes reading more attractive. In addition to recreational activities and games to develop as a family, achieving greater family connection.

The results are incredible, and despite the confinement in which the families live, the intervention of the Un Mundo organization has been able to bring peace and hope.

To continue supporting these communities and children, we ask you to continue collaborating with this project, since education through the promotion of reading is capable of breaking barriers and paradigms. And don't forget to share our stories so more people join our cause.

READING IN TIMES OF COVID

Our days would have been dreary and boring, locked at home, not having so much to do. However, the Un Mundo organization was able to create a playful work methodology that allowed us to continue reading from home, without putting our health at risk.

Every week we receive at home our work guides and the different reading options with extension activities to develop each one of them. It has been amazing all this time, as we have been able to have hours of family reading.

And the most interesting thing is that every week we have new storybooks, with real and educational stories about the pandemic, and other topics of daily life, which makes there more interest and motivation to have our reading activities.

We want to thank the Un Mundo organization and all the people who collaborate with this project, and tell them that without this support our lives would not be the same. Hopefully more people can join this wonderful life-changing cause.

SUCCESS STORY

Un Mundo bets a lot on local human resources, and works on all its programs promoting volunteering as an agent of sustainable change for rural communities.

 

TESTIMONY:

It was 2010, and when I was barely 10 years old, I heard about the story-time programming carried out by the Un Mundo organization, and how happy the children were participating. I was invited to participate in this activity, which was carried out by employees of the organization, and in some cases, by children from the community. After the first day of participation, I fell in love with this program, and I wanted to attend every day, I was aware of the entry time, and when the activity ended, I did not want to go home. My interest was so great that I decided to learn a lot, in order to be the facilitator of this activity. In a year of participation, I was chosen when I was just 11 years old, to carry out story hours in my community, where other children participated, younger, equal and older, and that made me feel proud of myself.

Later, when I was 14 years old, I began to lead a program called Bibliobandido, which is a kind of mobile library, with a variety of recreational activities, to visit neglected communities, with limited access to information and educational resources. Now with 20 years of age, and with 10 being a volunteer of the organization, I became a Senior Mentor, coordinating all literacy activities in 9 communities where the program is located.

And just like my experience, there are other young people who are in key positions within the Un Mundo organization, which makes us feel enormous pride, since we have been able to grow personally and professionally, starting a university career, serving as inspiration to other children. This is what makes Un Mundo different from many organizations in the country, it firmly believes in human potential, regardless of conditions or educational level. It is an inclusive organization, which provides opportunities to grow, and believe in yourself.

For other young people to follow in my footsteps, I invite you to give us your collaboration and support for this program, and serving as a link with family and friends so that they make their donation, so that they join this noble cause.
