FUNDAEC: Fundación para la Aplicación y Enseñanza de las Ciencias

FUNDAEC, the acronym in Spanish for “The Foundation for the Application and Teaching of the Sciences”, is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization that has dedicated over 30 years to fostering processes of learning, training, and development in the rural areas of Colombia and an increasing number of countries in Latin America.

This site shares the foundation’s story, the vision that motivates and orients its work, and includes a description of its two main programs—the Tutorial Learning System (better known by its Spanish acronym, SAT), an innovative secondary level educational system used by over 25,000 students throughout the Americas, and the University Center for Rural Well-Being (CUBR).

A list of our publications and educational texts, some of which can be downloaded or purchased, also appear on the site, as well as information on how to support FUNDAEC’s work. Please feel free to contact us if you have a question or comment, as we appreciate hearing from you.
