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.
