We train indigenous children and youth to lead sustainable development and preservation of ethnic groups
El Origen schools program decrease the illiteracy gap and enable the indigenous chilñdre to leverage their cultural heritage as a source of learning and an economic driver to return school and leave the streets.
As El Origen develops each new school, it adapts its model to the unique locale, language, cultural context, and teaching practices of the area, demonstrating a promising approach for building community-specific indigenous education across the region.
Our programs are currently based on Wayuu indigenous communities in La Guajira - Colombia. But they have been made to scale to disadvantage communities across the world.
