Edúcate Uruguay is a non-profit organization that strengthens the public school system, specifically in rural areas, through a model that generates an affective and effective bond of children to learning.

Founded in 2009, it has demonstrated to be a proven solution to reduce the gap in the access to educational opportunities between rural and urban children.

Reading is a Journey

Leer es un viaje

Reading is a journey, seeking that children want to read and that they do so on a daily basis. This project designed between Uruguayan and New Zealand specialist educators creates a positive bond between the child and the book, through rewarding reading experiences. Once interest is installed, we implement methodological strategies that transform children into autonomous readers. We encourage young people to sustain the habit of reading both at school and at home, making the book a genuine companion on their journey of learning.

Each school participating in the project receives the following resources: a library of books leveled according to the reading expertise, strategies and resources to encourage reading, a reading journal for each student, learning progressions.
