SOLIDARITY CHANGES LIVES ...

Testimony of a girl with a disability

Reading also helps me develop many skills in my life, and despite my cognitive disability I have been able to continue with my reading hours every afternoon, thanks to the support of my two friends from school, who meet with me every day to ensure that I have a reading comprehension.

My two friends have received reading facilitation techniques from the Un Mundo organization, and this has facilitated my learning. In the same way, there is constant monitoring to measure my progress.

Thanks to the support of my friends, Un Mundo and all those who collaborate so that the special education program reaches us. That is why I invite you to continue supporting this type of initiative, and to spread the word with your contacts, for those people who, due to their physical and cognitive condition, are excluded and marginalized.

EDUCATION THAT CHANGES LIVES

The special education program, which serves children with disabilities, received an application from a 9-year-old boy with dyslexia, reading and writing problems, social interaction problems, and low self-esteem.

TESTIMONY:

I did not know what to do to help my son, and no matter how hard I tried, I did not achieve the expected results, I wanted him not to confuse letters, to learn to read and write well. That is how I found out about the special education program promoted by the Un Mundo organization, and I joined him to be part of it.

From the first day of being part of the program, a volunteer or educational facilitator of the organization began to work in a personalized way with my son, and designed an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) that is followed up every day.

The improvement that my son has had is remarkable, and he can now read correctly, form short sentences, structure simple and compound words, interact with children and adults without any difficulty. My challenge now is that he can finish his primary school, he would be the first in the family to achieve it, since his other siblings could not reach that goal.

I am sure that, like my son, there are other successful experiences that would not be possible without the intervention of organizations like Un Mundo. That is why I invite you to make your contribution or donation to this program, and spread the word with your friends and family.

With little, we can make a difference in the lives of others.

THE FAMILY AS A FUNDAMENTAL BASE...

Inclusive education in times of COVID-19 is essential to work on the child's psycho-pedagogical and leadership development, and for this reason a playful methodology has been created with activities that the child must carry out at home, with the help of his father.

 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.

 GIRL'S TESTIMONY:

In this quarantine by COVID-19, and thanks to the support of the Un Mundo organization, I have seen how my parents have been involved in my tasks. I have been able to feel a lot of happiness knowing that this methodology of working at home helps the whole family to be involved. Today we have realized the importance of the family, as a fundamental basis of education.

 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 who, due to their living conditions or disabilities, have been excluded.

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION, AN OPPORTUNITY SPACE...

Education should not exclude, and should be inclusive, to provide safe spaces for learning, growth, participation and leadership. The health and special education program has become a light of hope for children, youth and adults with disabilities.

The different approach methodologies lead us to a common goal, to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.

Our girl in this story is developing writing skills, and fine motor strengthening, through drawings related to her context. She has been able to increase her skill in a short time, and has been a cause of inspiration for her parents.

These achievements are achieved thanks to the support and collaboration of many key actors, which is why we thank you for your contribution to the program, and for spreading the word about our successes.

DREAMS THAT ARE COMPLIED

A few years ago, I did not imagine that I could be able to achieve everything I set out to do, I felt like a shy girl, and excluded. He was not able to try anything, for fear of rejection. Today I can say that has been in the past. Belonging to the program that drives the organization Un Mundo, helped to develop my intellectual abilities, and above all to raise my self-esteem. Now I am an outgoing girl, and I want to participate in everything, to be an example that when you want you can.

Now I can say that dreams are fulfilled, and that barriers only exist in people's minds. Today I can say: "You can, if you think you can" and my heart tells me that I am capable of everything.

I cannot explain the happiness I feel after being able to learn to read, write, sing, speak in public ... achieve all this, is like touching the sky.

For other children to realize their dream, I invite you to continue collaborating with this program, and that it may be our voice to reach other people with a good heart.

Together we can keep changing lives
