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

This story tells of a boy who has grown up with his grandmother, and who was about to leave school and his dreams, because he could not learn to read and write, despite being 11 years old, and constantly repeat his grade.

Many people recommended to the grandmother, to enter her grandson to the Special Education program promoted by the organization Un Mundo. They told him about the achievements of other children with disabilities and gave him hope that the child would learn to read and write when he least expected it. After 3 years of uncertainty, he made the decision to enter the program.

Today this child is learning to read and write, and with this the motivation of him and his grandmother has increased, thanks to a process of teaching and learning, interactive and participatory learning, and through tools adapted to the child's cognitive condition.

Now and with a little bit of difficulty, the child can read news from the newspaper to his illiterate grandmother, medical prescriptions, letters he receives from his children, invitations to school meetings...

These testimonies of life are a reality thanks to the support of many people who with their valuable contribution help us to fulfill the dreams of the most invisible.

SPECIAL EDUCATION, A TOOL OF CHANGE ...

She lost her father a while ago, this made her a shy, fearful girl with no desire to face life. She is 9 years old, and she is in her fourth year of primary education, unable to read and write, as a result of the trauma caused by her family situation.

Testimony of a girl:

My dream was to learn to read and write, to tell mom how much I love her. To be able to write letters to my father to heaven. This is how I entered the program of children with disabilities or health and special education that drives the organization Un Mundo. It was an opportunity that life presented to me to see the light at the end of the dark tunnel. And after 1 year of belonging to this wonderful program, I learned to read and write, making my dream come true.

 

This program is changing the lives of many children with disabilities, and it offers them a light of hope. Many times, it is a long way, but in the end, it has its reward. It is bringing smiles in sad faces.

This positive impact on the lives of our beneficiaries would not be possible without their valuable collaboration. We invite you to continue supporting, and share these experiences with your friends, so that others join this noble cause.
