Newsletter January 2022
2021 was a year full of challenges,
learning and dreams for aeioTU.
The return to presence filled our hearts with hope and a great illusion of being able to look our children in their eyes again, contemplate their smiles, embrace their fears and accompany them once again on the adventure of exploring the world.
It was also a year to embrace the challenges that a complex context in early childhood leaves us. The return has been marked by new gaps in coverage, quality and socio-emotional status of children. A scenario that should bring together all the actors in society around early childhood culture.
It was a year of teamwork. We managed to manage alliances with various national and international actors such as: IOM Colombia / USAID, Hilton Foundation, SURA, ENEL, UNICEF Mexico, Roundglass, CONAFE Mexico, Color Foundation of Colombia, Gratitude Foundation, Serranía Foundation, BBVA and Education to share, to continue transforming the lives of millions of children in the world.
Our team vibrated with each challenge, grew and became stronger, thus consolidating new innovative proposals to expand our impact to 464,296children, 790,974parents and caregivers, 25,816educators and 3,771 kindergartensand educational centers.
We enter a project
with Migrant Population in partnership with USAID and IOM.
With the aim of generating social and community inclusion of the migrant population through early childhood care
To mitigate the impact caused by the pandemic, at aeioTU we created the Backpack of Experiences campaign, an initiative that raised 167 million pesos between economic and material funds, in order to dignify the spaces for the safe return of children to kindergartens.
With the aim of improving the quality of education for approximately 131,554 children in rural areas of Caquetá, in partnership with the LEGO Foundation, we launched the Rio project,
I play and I learn.
Hand in hand with leaders in education and development, we address issues around digital transformation and innovation to guide others in their role of accompanying children in the use of technology.
Our Educational Experience aeioTU was recognized as one of the top 15 innovations in education that foster the skills of
XXI century in Latin America and the Caribbean by HundrED and the Inter-American Development Bank IDB.
In the company of the Saldarriaga Concha Foundation, the virtual course Include from Early Childhood: children with disabilities was developed, with which we seek to share, through the aeioTU Network, strategies and pedagogical practices that allow us to provide comprehensive care to children with disabilities. .
aeioTÜ Laboratory 2021: Stories and Doodles
A training space for the educational community and transformation for our pedagogical practices. In it we articulate art and pedagogy for the transfer of knowledge through spaces such as conferences and workshops, as well as a panel of national and international experts where we develop a conversation to put on the table the importance of working to meet the objectives of sustainable development that affect early childhood development.
