Fe y Alegría seeks the integral development of its members, thinking about their personal development and what they can contribute to society.
Our popular education proposal incorporates cross-cutting themes on citizen rights and duties, personal and community identity, gender, ethics and a culture of peace, faith and justice. In addition, it includes technical education as a first link with the world of work.
Each Fe y Alegría educational institution is born from the aspirations of a community that finds itself in the midst of a reality of inequity in which opportunities do not reach the most needy and vulnerable.
Fe y Alegría arrives with a message of hope and with an educational proposal that starts from reality and offers opportunities for improvement which can only be achieved with everyone’s effort.
Training is provided to all citizens taking into account the fundamental right of the person and society to receive a quality education. The essential objective is the comprehensive training of ethical citizens, capable of taking responsibility for themselves and living in solidarity with others. Citizens who can unfold their potentialities and development of their abilities and fundamental values that the person must possess allow them to learn throughout their lives. It is about developing the seed of oneself, of helping to be born the man or woman that each one carries inside.
As Regular Basic Education we attend the three modalities:
Fe y Alegría provides education to children and adolescents who pass through the educational system in a timely manner, respecting all dimensions of their development: motor, socio-affective, cognitive and spiritual.

Currently, Fe y Alegría provides Alternative Basic Education in Comas and San Juan de Lurigancho (Lima), Tambogrande (Piura), Arequipa and Ica.
In the creation of Rural Educational Networks (RER), Fe y Alegría has found a space for meeting and articulation between various actors in the territory to promote and ensure quality education for the life of children and adolescents in rural areas, and thus shorten educational gaps and inequality of opportunities and access to services.
The RERs are sustained by the interest, commitment and active participation of the people of each of the local communities, directors and teachers of the public educational institutions, who adopt and decide to share the values and foundations that inspire the work of Fe y Alegría.
The RERs are conceived as learning communities and units of reflection, in-service training, pedagogical exchange, articulation, cohesion and social and cultural integration.
The RERs work is located in the provinces of Quispicanchis (Cuzco), Moro (Áncash) and Acobamba (Huancavelica) and serves a set of monolingual and bilingual schools in the Quechua language, of a single-teacher, multi-grade and multi-teacher at kindergarten, primary and secondary levels.

Fe y Alegría takes on the challenge of incorporating information and communication technologies (ICT) into its pedagogical and management processes. To do this, it created FyA Digital with a work team in charge of strengthening and promoting the use of ICT in inter-learning, reflection and continuous collaboration in the network, knowledge management, teaching and learning. Through various training programs that it develops in coordination with the pedagogical teams, Fe y Alegría has been reinforcing digital skills in directors and teachers, who in turn do so with students.
We are committed to continuously expanding opportunities for our students because we want them to be able to function in this new digital culture for new forms of communication, learning, work and exercise citizenship.
Fe y Alegría teachers are our great strength. They respond every day to the challenge of achieving a comprehensive and quality education which requires them to be permanently updated.
Fe y Alegría offers them various training options, from small courses of personal development and profesional competencias and general courses in their field of knowledge, to specialization programs, in alliance with universities and partner institutions.
The management of educational institutions is one of our pillars to achieve the educational quality that we offer, that is why we take care of their ongoing training through various training programs. FyA Digital offers courses aimed at developing management skills, with an emphasis on pedagogical leadership.
