Your Donation = Digital Education

As part of the global day of giving we are raising funds to support an on-going project in La Guajira, Colombia. We currently service 4,000 students across Colombia, and aim to serve 500 more. For each $35 donation we can provide a young student with the educational technology and support they need to facilitate learning during school closure and beyond to succeed in education and in life.

 

Our Program in La Guajira, Colombia

 

La Guajira, Colombia is a northeastern province on the border of Venezuela that is home to one of the largest refugee communities in the world. There are more than 160,000 refugees living in La Guajira, they have left Venezuela  in order to flee their country’s turmoil and in search of better opportunities. The province is also home to a robust indigenous population.

Today, educational outcomes in La Guajira are grim. Only 21.8% of students who register for 1st grade manage to reach 11th grade and graduate. An even smaller percentage manage to make it to college. With an underdeveloped education, these students are not equipped with the 21st century skills needed in the workforce and are propelled into a cycle of poverty

The Origin Learning Fund is committed to expanding opportunities for the youth in La Guajira by providing digital learning solutions.
