In Colombia, around 41, 411 children and adolescents were victims of the war, being the rural children the most affected. To close the gap between urban and rural areas to build sustainable peace in Colombia, we need to create an inclusive and equal education system.
Since 2014, the World Literacy Foundation is contributing to the solution. Through Aprende Leyendo, WLF has provided free books, literacy packs, and supportive reading groups to children living in poverty in Colombia.
Our activities aim to improve the literacy skills of children by giving them free access to quality education materials and innovative solutions that target wide-scale illiteracy.
