What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

How will this project solve this problem?
The project focuses on helping every child to reach their appropriate grade level according to their age, and bringing 160 children back to school.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project is part of a comprehensive community intervention program, 'Vision en Familia', which is helping improve the quality of life of 5,000 extremely vulnerable families from the municipality of Santander, Colombia.
