The most frequently asked questions

The Parolu Foundation carries out help programmes to combat the unemployment rate among low literate people and people in countries with a bad economic climate and gives them a better future. In the columns below you will find the most frequently asked questions per programme.

Programme "People Unite with Venezuela"

In which areas is Parolu active within this programme?
There are different countries in the world with a bad political and economic climate. Parolu aims at Venezuela primarily at this time because of the following reasons:

  • The situation in Venezuela is currently worrying and many people are in despair
  • Venezuela is frequently in the news, but in spite of that is the situation not really active in many parts of the world. There isn’t enough help available even though it’s needed more than ever.
  • The language programme is developed for Spanish speaking people who want to get a better grasp on the English language. More languages will follow soon.

Programme "Battle against low literacy"

What is low literacy?

People of 16 years and older, who struggle with language, math and/or digital skills, are often named “low literate”. This doesn’t mean they can’t fully read, write and/or do math but aren’t at the level required to function well in society.
