The Public Elementary School Juan Rulfo, in Chalco, State of Mexico, is attended by 504 children from 6 to 12 years old. For many of them, the school library is the only place where they can read, imagine and travel to imaginary worlds to create and narrate their own history.
Last year, with the help of the school community and donors like yourself, the school constructed a space for the library. Now we need your help to equip it! You will be the one donating the books; we will add the adventure of reading.
With the project “Books Go First”, Proeducación accompanies the school so it can integrate the library into the school’s everyday life. These way students, teachers and parents can enjoy books inside and outside of the classroom; they take them home and are responsible of its function.
Reading in children gives them new tools to solve problems: it increases concentration, vocabulary and gives them a new vision of the world. The School Library is a key element of the educational process. Its basic function is to offer children and young adults a safe and stimulating space where they can develop reading competencies and strategies that allow them to “learn to learn” throughout their lives.
With your contribution, we will be closer to reaching the goal of $ 3,000 USD, help us to continue creating adventures! Donate here!
