Fe y Alegría seeks the integral development of its members, thinking about their personal development and what they can contribute to society.
Our popular education proposal incorporates cross-cutting themes on citizen rights and duties, personal and community identity, gender, ethics and a culture of peace, faith and justice. In addition, it includes technical education as a first link with the world of work.
Each Fe y Alegría educational institution is born from the aspirations of a community that finds itself in the midst of a reality of inequity in which opportunities do not reach the most needy and vulnerable.
Fe y Alegría arrives with a message of hope and with an educational proposal that starts from reality and offers opportunities for improvement which can only be achieved with everyone’s effort.
Training is provided to all citizens taking into account the fundamental right of the person and society to receive a quality education. The essential objective is the comprehensive training of ethical citizens, capable of taking responsibility for themselves and living in solidarity with others. Citizens who can unfold their potentialities and development of their abilities and fundamental values that the person must possess allow them to learn throughout their lives. It is about developing the seed of oneself, of helping to be born the man or woman that each one carries inside.
As Regular Basic Education we attend the three modalities:
In the creation of Rural Educational Networks (RER), Fe y Alegría has found a space for meeting and articulation between various actors in the territory to promote and ensure quality education for the life of children and adolescents in rural areas, and thus shorten educational gaps and inequality of opportunities and access to services.
The RERs are sustained by the interest, commitment and active participation of the people of each of the local communities, directors and teachers of the public educational institutions, who adopt and decide to share the values and foundations that inspire the work of Fe y Alegría.
The RERs are conceived as learning communities and units of reflection, in-service training, pedagogical exchange, articulation, cohesion and social and cultural integration.
Fe y Alegría offers comprehensive training that allows its students to perform adequately in the professional and labor field as professional-citizens committed to the development of their territory and in dialogue with the local culture.
Fe y Alegría takes on the challenge of incorporating information and communication technologies (ICT) into its pedagogical and management processes. To do this, it created FyA Digital with a work team in charge of strengthening and promoting the use of ICT in inter-learning, reflection and continuous collaboration in the network, knowledge management, teaching and learning. Through various training programs that it develops in coordination with the pedagogical teams, Fe y Alegría has been reinforcing digital skills in directors and teachers, who in turn do so with students.
We are committed to continuously expanding opportunities for our students because we want them to be able to function in this new digital culture for new forms of communication, learning, work and exercise citizenship.
