Our work is structured according to three axes: fostering access to education and knowledge; the improvement of educational quality through the incorporation of ICTs; the generation and dissemination of knowledge.
It has taken us 13 years of growth to achieve this and become a global entity that is present today in Spain and 8 Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Mexico and Ecuador. In addition, we work in collaboration with local agents in Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, Uruguay and El Salvador. In Europe we also collaborate with 5 countries: Germany, Slovakia, Great Britain and the Czech Republic through Telefónica Volunteers.
