Within the framework of the celebration of International Book Day, the Educational Foundation Grow with All together with the Embassy of the United States made the official presentation of their three books on migration and interculturality.
The organization had already developed the program First LEE, a literacy initiative created as an editorial project with two thematic lines: Migration and Interculturality and Gender Equity. Its objective is to support the education of teachers and students in the current context
Aimed at first grade children, the books will be physically delivered to students in the program and are available free of charge to download from the website.
Through the use of timely and efficient illustrative tools, three bilingual Spanish / English stories directed to the topic of migration are carried out; These texts, which bear the name: "Barbanota the migrant pirate", "From ice to sand" and "We are equal and different" approach this subject in a fun and digestible way for children.
The First LEE program is being implemented since 2010 and is currently present in 285 educational establishments in vulnerable contexts throughout Chile. Its proven effectiveness is making it possible to fulfill the objective of the Foundation: that all children read and write comprehensively from 1st grade.
The initiative, which is aimed at students from pre-kindergarten to fourth grade and which is articulated with the curricular bases of the Ministry of Education, works through continuous support and involving teachers, parents and the rest of the educational community.
The organization is supported by Colunga through the 2017 Strengthening Fund, with which they were able to design the First LEE program for students in the fourth quarter of the Arica district.
