¡WE TRANSFORM CHILDREN'S LIVES THROUGH THE POWER OF LITERACY!
When a person knows how to read and write, they can access to better opportunities in life, actively participate in their community and contribute to the economic and social development of their country. These skills allow any individual to communicate with their environment, access different types of information and receive an education.
DINGO App is a digital learning tool that aims to develop and enhance literacy skills in both; Spanish and English, of children from a low-income background.
Low literacy rates have a negative impact on health, welfare, gender equality, social cohesion and work opportunities which can lead to increased rates of poverty.
By supporting the education system of developing countries with quality educational resources and tools, we are helping to break the poverty cycle.
Empowering children to become ‘global citizens’
We aim to educate children on sustainable development issues to encourage them to participate in the creation of a more just, peaceful, inclusive, secure and sustainable world.
Local Tailored Content
The educational activities will be associated with the Colombian context to facilitate meaningful learning.
The app is developed in collaboration with partners and volunteers in the education sector, graphic designers, authors, IT engineers and children from our reading program.
We know English is an essential language for a globalized world. Our app provides a module to learn basic vocabulary in English.
The facilitator and children won’t need an Internet connection to run the App. The content will be pre-loaded in the tablets.
It is so much cheaper and easier than transporting thousands of books to every community
