Drummond Ltd. and the Genesis Foundation Partnership:

Drummond Ltd. and the Genesis Foundation are working together to help strengthen the quality of education in Colombia by implementing the Palabrario & Numerario program in 7 schools in the Department of Cesar, in benefit of 5,609 boys and girls and 221 teachers.

Palabrario & Numerario is a nationwide educational program of the Genesis Foundation that seeks to promote the reading and writing skills and the logical mathematical thinking of preschool and elementary students by training and accompanying teachers. The resulting transformation of teachers’ educational practices generates an impact on student learning.
Palabrario & Numerario’s goals in Cesar are to motivate teachers to create significant experiences and connect language and mathematics in learning and teaching processes, improve student performance, and raise the awareness of parents about how important it is to support their children’s educational processes.
