Promoting Education for All in Latin America: Fe y Alegria's Experience and Inspiration
Latin America is the world's most unequal region, with forty percent of the total population affected by poverty. In the twenty-first century, education remains the key to reducing the gap between rich and poor, but much work remains to achieve an inclusive and accountable cross-sector partnership on education and development in the region. Jorge Cela, S.J., spoke at the Berkley Center about how faith-based organizations play a key role in this effort, highlighting the work of Fe y Alegria, the largest public-private partnership on education in Latin America and the Caribbean. Gasper LoBiondo, S.J., senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Center and a former teacher in Chile, was the commentator.
