About Us

The Fundación Rafael Pombo (FRP) is a non-profit organization, geared towards building a culture that supports children’s rights and participation. Our activities integrate different cultural landmarks into the development of creative thinking, autonomy, and solidarity principles in children, by promoting reading for pleasure, the use of artistic languages and creative play.

Our Pedagogy of Sensitivity - Pedagogía de la Sensibilidad Fundación Rafael Pombo® -seeks to build teaching and learning spaces that positively influence the ties between children and adults. In order to achieve this, our educational strategy is based on games, literature, and everyday life, supported by our educational principles of participation.

We have been pioneers in the development of projects which have influenced girls, boys, teens, and adult’s lives in a positive way in our country. We have achieved this by the consolidation of services that help teachers, cultural agents, girls, boys, and young people to get close to the oral and written word anchored in their culture.

Annually, the FRP attends approximately 50.000 boys and girls that belong to marginalized communities. Up to this date, the FRP has worked with over 3 million boys, girls, and educators.
