LITERACY IN COVID-19 TIMES...

The pandemic has not been limiting to reach each family with our programming, and children enjoy their quarantine days, playing and learning with our activities.

 In the region where the Un Mundo organization works, it is not possible to use technology for educational work, since some of the communities do not have electricity or a cell phone signal, so a parcel box was created, where the weekly work is deposited, taking all the security measures and protocols, to ensure that there is no risk of contagion.

 The children have found in the Un Mundo organization, a window and opportunity, to continue enriching their knowledge.

 GIRLS 'TESTIMONY:

Evidence 1:

When we were told that we should be locked up at home because of the pandemic, I was sad to know that I could not attend the programming of the Un Mundo organization, nor my school. But to my surprise, the organization worked out guides with exercises and activities that we could carry out at home. Now I spend entertaining and fun, and above all learning, despite the crisis we are experiencing.

 Evidence 2:

The days go by quickly, and every week I am waiting for the working guides of the Un Mundo organization, to be able to continue entertaining and learning. Without the support of the Un Mundo organization, our confinement would be very stressful.

 If you already collaborate with this program, we thank you. If you still don't, we invite you to join this cause and spread the word among your friends. This program is changing the lives of many children, and teaching different ways of learning.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP AS AGENTS OF CHANGE...

Literacy is not only limited to the teaching of reading and writing, it is to develop leadership skills as a theory of change.

TESTIMONY:

We girls, adolescents and young people are violated our rights for being a woman. However, when we enter a pedagogical training process, our opportunities expand, and we are able to be agents of change.

I remember that before I was unable to speak in public, to express feelings or emotions, to be able to support other young people. And now that I am part of the organization, and that I have received training in leadership issues, I am able to lead literacy programming in my community with almost 60 people (boys, girls, young people), and this makes me proud of myself, and it has been inspiration for other women.

Many dreams are not fulfilled, due to the lack of opportunities, but this program has been able to offer safe participation spaces, and you can look at the impact it is causing in our lives.

For other adolescent girls to continue to grow their leadership, we need their contribution, and to keep spreading the word. And thank you from the heart for everything you do with your valuable collaboration.

A PROGRAM THAT LOVES...

The literacy program is reaching more than 500 children in postponed communities, without access to information and resources. It is a program that falls in love.

Testimony of three girls:

-I love to come to programming every afternoon because I learn in a fun way, and because I have space to interact with other girls in my community, where we learn from each other.

-The program helps me strengthen school areas that I have weakness, and most importantly, I have developed leadership skills that allow me to speak in public without fear.

-I'm an outgoing girl, who loves to draw, listen and read stories. And, above all, I am proud to be able to help other girls who need support.

To continue having this impact on our communities, be sure to support, and above all, be our voice with other people.

¡Dreams come true when together we paddle in the same direction!

Teacher
Teacher

This story tells the happiness and satisfaction of a teacher, who, thanks to playful programming and through reading aloud, has seen a significant improvement in her students' ability to read and write.

Formal education is linear, boring, it evaluates based on statistics, it is not interactive... but the programming that is promoted through the Literacy Connections program promoted by the organization Un Mundo, tells us that the best way to learn is to play. It works from a participatory approach, where the child can make mistakes without being questioned, and above all to enter the cycle of learning, unlearning, learning...

As a teacher it is satisfactory to learn different teaching and learning techniques, and that manages to capture the interest and motivation of the child in the classroom. This program is changing the way you see education and educate.

I am convinced that the improvement in the quality of education, and the results in children, are fantastic, because we are using art as education, from an imaginative and creative perspective.

However, none of these successes would be possible without the contribution of the people who join this cause. Let's keep making dreams come true for those with less possibilities.

WALKING TOWARD SUCCESS

Testimony of a girl:

Despite being only 10 years old, I love reading. And it gives me so much satisfaction and happiness, that now I can express myself better, and have a better reading comprehension.

A few days ago, I competed in the First Regional Meeting of Children's Stories and obtained the first place in the category of adolescents, where children aged 10-14 from different educational centers participated. This award is the constancy and love for reading that I have cultivated for almost 3 years in the programming of the Library that drives the organization Un Mundo.

I am so happy to be a leader that helps other children to create the habit of reading, and especially to share my learning to others. This is just the beginning of many dreams that I make reality.

John Maxwell said: "Our candle is not extinguished by giving light to others"

I fell in love with this thought, which now I put at the service of others every learning acquired in the day to day of my reading or school hours.

I am sure that, if we continue to promote reading and education as a means of change, we will have achieved a significant change in the lives of others.

My dream, and that of many children would not be possible without the support of you who make your donations or contributions, for this reason I invite you to continue supporting this program initiative of the organization Un Mundo.
