New initiative of the educational platform "Educar, Pegar, Volar"

A better school for all with Pritt

Pritt invites schools across Spain to participate in a solidarity initiative which aims at the schooling of disadvantaged children in Brazil, in collaboration with Fritz Henkel Stiftung Foundation and the NGO PLAN International.

As a benchmark in glue sticks sector, since its inception Pritt has supported education and this is why the brand has developed, together with a group of expert teachers, the portal www.educarpegarvolar.com, where the community of teachers can find educational activities for the competence development of their students.

This year, with the aim of extending its commitment to children’s education, Pritt has created the solidarity initiative "Entre Escuelas" (“Between Schools”), in collaboration with the Fritz Henkel Stiftung Foundation and the NGO Plan International Germany.

Educational contest

"Entre Escuelas" is not only a solidarity initiative to build schools in Brazil. In fact, Spanish centers involved might receive support as well to improve their facilities, as three prizes of € 3,000 will be available. The mechanics of the competition are very simple: from the 1st of April until June 15, schoolchildren share what they wish for the perfect school in Brazil, and translate it into a craft with the help of their teachers. Schools should share their work on the platform “Educar, Pegar, Volar” (“Learn, Glue, Fly”) also indicating what they would use the prize for, that goes to their school. During this period of time, everybody can vote those proposals they like the most. On June 22 the 30 short-listed works will be communicated. A jury composed of representatives of the Fritz Henkel Stiftung Foundation and the NGO Plan International will choose the three winning projects, which will be announced on 21 September. Each of those ideas will inspire Pritt & Plan International to build the schools for the children in Brazil.

“Educar, Pegar, Volar”, a collaborative community open to teachers

With the aim of being an ally of educators and offer proposals and ideas that help them to develop the content of each school year, in 2008 Pritt created the community of teachers "Educar, Pegar, Volar". It is a platform where teachers can download activities created by Pritt to be used in their classes, at the same time that can share educational projects that have been carried out with students in the section "Ideas of the community". Furthermore, on the Facebook page teachers can keep up to date of the latest news and latest activities as well as participate in different competitions to win school material.
