Open Book project

EMC and PADF partnered to support the Open Book Project implemented between 2010 and 2012 in two schools by Fundación Leer, an organization based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This initiative, which received support from EMC volunteers, local schools, and Fundación Leer specialists, aimed to:

  1. Promote reading and children literacy in order to facilitate the social immersion of children in at-risk communities
  2. Strengthen the educational process by turning reading into a more prominent activity not only in school but also at home

The program made it possible for participating schools to access new books and provide training to teachers, librarians and principals on how to create an environment that fosters a culture of reading among students.
