READING CHANGES YOUR LIFE...

Reading changes your life, it is our slogan with our program and that collects the voices of our beneficiaries.

We have seen girls capable of creating their own stories, narrating in front of a group of 30 people, winning story contests, and above all, being leaders who inspire.

Girl testimonial:

Reading gave me back my security, of believing that I am capable. It helped me improve my reading, writing, creativity, inventiveness... Being part of the Un Mundo program has been my best experience, it has given me knowledge, joy, empathy, leadership...

I'm sure more girls have the same feelings, I can see it in our book club.

To continue helping to change lives, we need you to continue making your contribution and donation, and to share our stories to continue impacting more children.

You can also visit our social networks and Un Mundo website to learn about our impact

THE MAGIC OF READING

Reading is a magical adventure that helps to be more imaginative, creative, and to develop critical and analytical thinking skills.

The Literacy Connections program promotes the creation of books, unpublished stories, leadership, empathy, respect, tolerance, among others, as strategies for social change, and through art they can express feelings and emotions.

In the image, a girl and a boy from a community decided to create giant unpublished stories to teach other children to create their own stories. They let their imagination run wild, and were able to inspire others.

TESTIMONY OF THE GIRL AND BOY IN THE PHOTOGRAPH:

-We believe that this type of initiative helps us to discover all our abilities and skills. It helps us to fall in love with reading, and to be aware that knowledge gives us power.

-We want all children to love reading, and with this we are going to achieve many changes in their way of thinking and acting.

To continue making our children's dreams come true, we need to continue to have your collaboration, in addition to sharing our success stories so that other people get on this boat.

Together we can achieve it!

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.
