Participatory, Experiential Learning
Fundación Escuela Nueva
For the past 33 years, FEN has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of children and their families through quality education that equips and empowers them as individuals of a flourishing society; reducing inequality and combating poverty. Their participatory, cooperative, and personalized approach to learning nurtures an ethos of peace and participation where children, teachers, and communities are the main actors of change. Their goal is for all children, regardless of their context, to have access to quality education and opportunities to fully develop their human potential. Over the last two years, they have worked in over 1,260 rural remote schools in Colombia, training over 3,100 teachers and reaching over 45,400 children with high quality learning materials.
