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. FEN was founded with two goals in mind:
1) Improve the quality and relevance of education in schools with limited resources, based on the Escuela Nueva model;
2) And research and innovate the model, adapting its principles and pedagogy to new contexts, settings and populations.
We contribute to improve the quality, relevance, and efficiency of education by rethinking the way we learn and promoting active, cooperative, and personalised learning centered on the learner.
We want to be a global referent for active and personalised learning based on the Escuela Nueva model; and we want to lead a global movement to improve the lives of the underserved through our educational model centred on the learner.
