Fundación  Escuela Nueva

Fundación Escuela Nueva

Escuela Nueva, meaning 'new school' in Spanish, transforms the conventional school model by rethinking the teaching and learning processes to ensure that every child, everywhere, receives high-quality, accessible and relevant education.

About me

FEN is a Colombian NGO founded in 1987 by the authors of the Escuela Nueva pedagogical model and the core team that pioneered and developed the program.

For the past 30 years, we have improved the lives of children and their families through education that empowers and enables them as individuals. Through our educational model we seek to improve the quality, relevance and efficiency of education by focusing on the learner and rethinking the way we learn. Our approach promotes active, participatory, cooperative and personalized learning.  

At FEN we have the audacious ambition of nurturing an ethos of peace and participation where children, teachers and communities are the main actors of change; we envision a future where children can achieve outstanding opportunities and outcomes regardless of their context, through quality education.
