THE STORY:

For the past 27 years, we have improved the lives of children and their families through education that empowers and enables them as individuals. Through our educational model we seek to improve the quality, relevance and efficiency of education by focusing on the learner and rethinking the way we learn. Our approach promotes active, participatory, cooperative and personalized learning.

Our goal for this SE Challenge is to raise funds for 5 low income Colombian primary schools that educate 1,000+ children, at a cost of $20 per child. But we don´t want to stop here!

All funds will be invested in experiential training activities, mentorship and follow up strategies for teachers to improve their pedagogic practices, participatory engagement activities with families and communities and very high quality educational materials for the students and their classrooms.

WHAT WE DO

At FEN we have the audacious ambition of nurturing an ethos of peace and participation where children, teachers and communities are the main actors of change; and envision a future where children can achieve outstanding opportunities and outcomes regardless of their context, through quality education.

As Colombia (and the World!) pursues peace and democratic principles, pedagogic practices must be shifted to promote dialogue and debate, and to encourage civic engagement and cohesion.

Whereas traditional teaching views learning as an exclusive and an individual affair, Escuela Nueva transforms education into a necessarily collective and cohesive endeavor, such that the civic ideals necessary for citizenship and peace are embedded and encouraged into the system, and affect society.

Through our work with students, teachers, educational administrators and communities we transform conventional, teacher-centered learning into child-centered, active, participatory and collaborative learning and empower them to be leaders and change agents.

Since our founding, our work and ideas have benefitted more than 5 million children across 16 Latin American countries, Vietnam, East Timor and, most recently, Zambia; and has earned us important recognitions. We have developed one of the longest running, bottom-up educational innovations of the developing world that has successfully impacted national policies.

Help us help others! Please donate or become a member of our fundraising team today by clicking here.

Together we can make education the most powerful tool of all.

THANK YOU!
