We are Berättarministeriet
Who we are
Berättarministeriet is a non-profit and non-partisan foundation working to make Sweden a country where all children and youth master the written word and have the means to actively participate in society. We run creative and story based educational centres in socioeconomically under-privileged areas with a focus on children aged 8-11, which are critical years in a child’s language development. To extend our reach, we support and equip teachers with learning methodologies and educational programmes, through which creative methods encourages students to conquer the written word, regardless of their knowledge level. The programmes are anchored in the curriculum and work as an interdisciplinary support for teachers. Our work is supported by a collaborative model where resources from the public, private and civic sector combine to ensure Berättarministeriet’s long-term development and quality.
What we do
All our programmes begin in one of our educational centres where our co-workers, volunteers, physical spaces and props lays the foundation for a story around “editor Schwartz” and “the publishing house Berättarministeriet”.
Through a methodical and continuous evaluation of each programme by each participating teacher, we ensure that we create the intended impact and effect towards our goal.
