Strengthening Literacy 

PADF partner Fundación Leer has implemented a literacy program in Ushuaia, a city located in Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego region. The Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (RCL) funding has helped support a children’s center that served 150 children. The grant increased the number of books in the center’s library, which has expanded the types of reading activities available to the children, many of whom are socially at-risk. In addition, RCL’s support has strengthened teacher training, improved literacy, and provided resources to parents so they can better support their children’s learning.
