The project will benefit 160 children who attend the school N 175 "Ruca Anai", in Trelew, Chubut in Argentina, a country where 52% of the children between 15 and 17 years cannot understand properly a simple text. The school is located in Tiro Federal, a very humble neighborhood in the City of Trelew that for 25 years has suffered from sewage and flooding problems. At the beginning of 2020, the water tanks overflowed again on the roof of the library, spoiling the few children's books they had.
Since the 90s, education system in Argentina has been deteriorating, arriving today to an important crisis. In what regards reading, according to PISA Tests carried out by OCDE in 2012, Argentina ranked 61 among 65 countries tested. This is one of the lowest results, even if we compare it to other countries in Latin America. Besides, Argentina has been decreasing its place in the region compared to the evaluations done in 2000 and in 2009.
Implementing this project, we'll provide the school with 175 new books of children's literature so teachers will have quality material that invites the children to read.
Provide the school with new literature books to rebuild their library - Widen and diversify the experiences of reading in the children's journeys - Make aware the importance of reading in the general development of the children involved and create an alliance between the schools and the families - Parents will acquire resources to promote literacy at home and so the literacy education of the entire family will be strengthened. - In the future, children will become active members of society.
