Our mission is to provide access to quality books for impoverished rural children and families in Venezuela.
Rural children in Venezuela are eager to learn but many lack essential basic reading skills. Why? Their families can't afford books and worse, there are no public libraries available.
To help these children become better readers, volunteers organized the Venezuelan Foundation for Education & Culture, or FUNDVEC in 2002, and then raised funds to build a small public library in a village located in Venezuela's central plains.
FUNDVEC also reaches out to encourage parents and teachers to read aloud to their children from age-appropriate books through a bookcase library program that so far has been launched in 19 rural preschools.
Access to up-to-date, quality books is a crucial educational tool that enables disadvantaged rural citizens to pursue lifelong learning, improve agriculture methods and progress economically.
