in the role of civil society as an agent of change
to improve the educational quality of public and private schools
resources from businesses and individual donors to sponsor programs that target Uruguay’s most underprivileged populations
What we do
We raise funds to sponsor programs, at times in their initial stages, pushing for innovation and the improvement of the processes and education methods employed.
We bridge donors to a diverse portfolio of programs that target the most disadvantaged populations in Uruguay (low education and low income) from 0 to 18 years old.
Through a rigorous process, we carefully select educational projects that address the main challenges facing Uruguayan education.
Our value added
A systemic perspective and impact
Since we work with the main actors in Uruguay’s education ecosystem, through our portfolio of programs, our donors can impact vulnerable populations in all of Uruguay.
Investment based on strategic areas
Our program portfolio is selected based on criteria deﬁned by data analysis, sector trends, educational public policy guidelines together with the advice of national and international experts.
Accountability during the entire process
Each of the programs in our portfolio is monitored periodically to ensure compliance with the previously agreed objectives and the efficient use of funds.
Over 20 years of experience
