Challenge

A Reading Corner will be built at an indigenous rural school located in Las Llanas, Salta, Argentina, benefiting 42 at risk children and their families. These vulnerable families have poor access to health/educational services and literacy materials. Fundación Leer will train five local teachers to effectively promote literacy among kids in the facility. Also, 250 new children’s books will be bought and a Reading Corner assembled, bringing children closer to books and motivating them to read.

Solution

Fundación Leer will train teachers on children’s literacy. Volunteers will create/inaugurate a Reading Corner with 250 new children’s books, offering literacy related activities. We will offer technical/pedagogical support and monitoring/evaluation.

Long-Term Impact

Children/Youth: enhance reading/writing/oral expression; read more for fun; succeed in school; value education for personal growth. Parents/Teachers: become good reading models; promote reading/literacy for children’s future; promote family reading.
