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.



We do research to build bridges between “should be” and “know-how”. We are guided by the children’s response to the teachers’ proposals and we generate questions that inform theory with practice and vice versa. At the same time, we evaluate the impact of our projects, questioning with equal rigor the aspects that could be improved upon.

We create research opportunities for rural teachers in partnership with educators from New Zealand, Australia, Chile and Spain, to generate knowledge of how children learn best.
