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.

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.

Special education is the transformation of life, is to provide tools to better understand your reality. It's building dreams together ...

Our girl in this story shows us that when you can, you want to, and that disability only exists in the minds of those who do not want to overcome.

Taking the pencil and drawing a line is an achievement for her. However, create a drawing that represents your environment, that is ecstasy.

Testimony of a girl:

I always wanted to draw something, and at first, I thought it was impossible, but now that I make it happen, I can understand that barriers only exist for the losers. I have shown others and myself that we can achieve everything we set out to do.

I am sure that many dreams are lost to reality because of the fear of trying, and I want to be an inspiration for other children.

In order to continue fulfilling the dreams of many children, we need to continue having their individual collaboration, and be grateful that they can link us with new individuals, so that together we can change the lives of those who are forgotten and excluded.

Inclusive education, transforms the lives of people...

One thought says: "The greatest disability of a person is that which is in the mind"

With this in mind, we worked on an educational program for children in schools in the theme "Inclusive Risk Management and Disasters in Disability and Older Adult".

In this story, we introduce you to six children who dramatized different disabilities, guided by an expert in Inclusive Education. The purpose was for each child to be able to interpret and understand each disability, and how to be inclusive.

Below, you can read some of the testimonies of these children:

Before I laughed when I looked at a disabled person, and today I understand that that person has the same values, dignity and dreams, that all of us.

-Family of the image


Nobody is far from a disability, today we can be outside of it, tomorrow we can be inside. That is why we cannot be indifferent and selfish before this situation.

-Family of the image

Our program will continue transforming lives, breaking paradigms, creating awareness, and above all offering better living conditions. To make these dreams come true, we need to continue to have their collaboration and support, and to be able to spread the word to more people to make all our expectations come true.

"Together we can be part of the change we want to see"

Education for children with special educational needs is worked in a fun, creative and personalized way, using attractive teaching-learning tools.

The child can learn more quickly, increasing their self-esteem and self-confidence. He is inspired and motivated to attend classes every day, and his personal and professional development can be easily perceived.

Using playful methodology allows a connection between the child and the teacher, and makes the class more interactive and participatory, ensuring that other areas arise spontaneously.

This program every time breaks paradigms and ensures a greater inclusion of children in regular schools, managing to reduce the discrimination and exclusion gap. Children are part of their environment and become inspiration for the rest of the children in their school.

Learning by playing has been a success to ensure attendance, academic performance and school motivation. It really makes you fall in love to see the children's smile knowing that they are capable of learning in a different way.

They will continue playing and learning, they will make their imagination fly and they will travel through the wonderful world of education ...

Many thanks to all the donors that make this program a reality. Without you support, our success would not be possible.

We will continue changing lives!
