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.

Mabel D ´Agostini

Mabel is a grandmother made of iron and sugar. She was a teacher in her beloved Paysandú city for more than 35 years, where she taught philosophy.

She specialized in Reading Encouragement and is a referent for the National Reading Plan in Uruguay.

Her path crossed with Educate in 2015 and, due to that coincidence, we welcomed her as a workshopist of our “Leer es un Viaje” program. She became its main spokesperson by sharing her love for stories and reading.
