Principles of our action
Our main objective is to promote the Right to Education of the most vulnerable population. To this end, we collaborate with institutions in different countries through projects that ensure access to inclusive and quality education and, also, that promote lifelong learning opportunities for everyone.
We believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, reducing inequalities and developing the maximum potential of each person to access the labor market and lead a more autonomous life.
Our priority lines of intervention are:
We guarantee scholarships and study grants to ensure access to education for the most vulnerable children and youth.
We advise on the development of teaching materials and tools, as well as training in good teaching practices.
We provide educational and school materials, as well as technology and computer equipment to reduce the digital gap in education.
We support the construction and adaptation of educational facilities that provide safe, inclusive and effective learning environments.
Other lines of action
At the Parentes Foundation we are aware that human rights are indivisible and interrelated, which means that the advancement of one facilitates the advancement of the others. For this reason, in addition to promoting the right to education, some of our support is aimed at guaranteeing a healthy life and promoting well-being for all people, especially children, youth and the elderly. We also consider it essential to ensure the availability of adequate water and sanitation, especially in educational and health centers.
