WHO WE ARE

We work to ensure children from a disadvantaged background in Colombia have the opportunity to acquire literacy skills to reach their full potential, succeed at school and beyond.

We strongly believe that education is a basic human right that can break the poverty cycle by allowing people to access better opportunities in life.

WHY LITERACY

A Research conducted by Harvard University confirms that in the early years, more than a million new neural connections are formed every second. Nourishing and stimulating a child’s mind in the first years of life is as essential as feeding their body. This shapes the adults they become, the success they achieve, and the contributions they make to our economy and society.

Unfortunately, many kids from disadvantaged backgrounds are not getting the educational nourishment they need. Children who grow up in low-income families enter school with substantially smaller words than their wealthier classmates.

Going to school without words is like going without being feed. This makes harder for kids the development of their creativity, imagination, communication skills and also it affects negatively their learning and development process.

This disadvantage is the beginning of more inequalities along the life and has a negative impact not only on the academic performance at school but in salary level earned in the adulthood.
