Our initiative; Aprende Leyendo, strive 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.



* Literacy Tutoring

We offer a safe space where children assist once a week for literacy tutoring. We read together, practice writing exercises, play fun games, and share a meal.


* Literacy Resources Distribution

We distribute new and second-hand books, school supplies, and other literacy resources within the community.


* Teaching English

During school holidays, we welcome international volunteers to teach English to children to foster the learning of English a second language which is essential in a globalized world.


*  Dingo App

We are bringing together innovative technology, e-books, games and local educational content to advance the learning of children with limited access to education and technology. Read more www.aprendeleyendo.com/dingo-app

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.

Collaborative solution


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.

Bilingual content


We know English is an essential language for a globalized world. Our app provides a module to learn basic vocabulary in English.

Off-line Content


The facilitator and children won’t need an Internet connection to run the App.

Low-cost Solution


It is so much cheaper and easier than transporting thousands of books to every community
