We work as an extracurricular education club. We provide all children with a hot nutritious meal, fruit and 4 hours of extracurricular education, Monday to Friday.
On a daily basis we aim to fill bellies, put smiles on faces and sow a few seeds of curiosity. As the weeks have gone on we have seen children become more confident and eager to learn. New concepts such as respect and responsibility as well as problem solving ideas are helping these children fulfil their potential.
We know that education is absolutely critical to the future of the children and their families but also the future of this valley. We aim to provide these children with not only the tools for a successful future but also the emotional support to become responsible leaders of their communities.
Through the garden we work on science, math, geography philosophy and spark the children´s curiosity to learn and love for environment. ,
Respect and empathi towards all living beens are the core of our classes.
Technology literacy, tutoring and English
We share different tools to navigate technology and its use as the great resource it can be and provide extra support on their school subjects, also we use the Jolly phonics methods to learn the basic of English as they play.
Emotional Intelligence , Movi - Creando & Martial arts.
Confidence, team work, discipline, active learning, problem solving and self-esteem are some of the topics we work through different activities and workshops.
We have developed a great program, the children love being in the garden and learning new skills and regular healthy meals allow them to develop physically and mentally.
Our ambitions are high; we want to extend this type of education to as many kids from the high Andes as possible. Your contribution will help us take the next step and expand our program to more children in the local area. Our outreach projects from the farm will allow us to engage the local community, build bridges and create enthusiasm and support for the program as well as providing a hands on experience for the students. In the long run we aim to create a generation of children who have had access to the education they need, are respectful of their environment, and know how to work in harmony with nature.
We believe that these specific measure will help alleviate some of the stresses and hardship that poverty brings and prepare these children to be successful adults, family members, community leaders and caring parents of the next generation.
