ABOUT US

We are a nonprofit foundation; our objective is to build a culture to assure childhood rights. Particularly we are interested on promoting their rights to participation.

Our proposal is to integrate different culture role models to the creative thought development, the autonomy and solidarity in girls and boys, by the promotion of the liking for reading and the use of artistic languages and creative play.

We have been pioneers in the development of projects which have influenced girls, boys, young and grownup people´s life in a positive way in our country. We’ve achieved this by the consolidation of a proposal that helps teachers, culture agents, girls, boys and young people to get close to the oral and written word.

 

Pedagogy and Methodology

The Pedagogy of the Sensitivity Rafael Pombo Foundation, grounded on the participation principles and based on playing, reading and daily life, aims at generate significant spaces to transform in affective experiences the relationship among boys, girls and grownups. The Foundation inspires girls and boys to get close to read and write from their own experience and to help them discover their own creative potential.

Our pedagogy is an alternative tool for the early childhood and scholar age girls and boys learning process. Their main elements are:

The promotion of the liking for read…

To help the practice of reading to become a part of the people daily life it must come from the pleasure of doing it, from playing and from complicity. The ways and possibilities to reach and stay at a reading stage are infinite, but not by the way of imposition, qualification and fear. For the Foundation, the learning processes to be successful in the promotion of the liking for reading and writi...

In these meetings we work on building memory, evocation, history and literature that get together in the reading of the daily contents, to recreate and create with fantasy, inventive and ludic. To achieve this objective we leave the traditional formats that characterize the relationship between educational agents and kids. In this sense, the format of workshop, offers to the girls and boys a flexi...

Play and equality of opportunities

Our pedagogical proposal gets the virtues of an intentional context that warranties freedom and confidence to play, to read, to sing and to hear other kids and grownups. In Friedrich words: “to give freedom by the freedom” (Rodri: 1983).

The right to participate

The Foundation´s proposal is the exercise of the right to participate, as long as the proposals come from the girls and boys, while the grownups role is to understand and facilitate the conditions to help girls and boys to exercise their potential. Our pedagogy is based on the conception of the participation with intergeneration character, where reading, literature, play and creativity, are the op...

Historia

The initiative of the Foundation become since 1983, thanks to the President of Colombia Belisario Betancur, who after a visit to Europe to the house where Christian Andersen was born in Odense (Denmark), visualized the possibility to create in Bogotá the Rafael Pombo Foundation. In this sense, he recovered the house where Rafael Pombo was born as a cultural heritage. Rafael Pombo is highly recognized as a children’s literature personality in our country and iberoamerica. And so, he seeks that the Foundation develops its work focused on the children population of our country. Such an initiative demands an agile and effective organization, where the government and most important society sectors were committed. President Belisario Betancur called to every related government institutions, someway, closely linked with childhood social work, also aiming at private companies and at every people that could comprehend the reach of this idea and who has the capacity to contribute to this matter. The response was enthusiastic and it made possible that in august 8 of 1985, the constitution document was signed. As a first requirement, the Foundation needed its own headquarters, and it was cov...
