6,000 children will improve reading comprehension and appreciation for Lima's natural surroundings through a fun story that tells the adventures of 2 characters in Lurin, Lima’s last existing valley.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Peruvian kids and teachers have little access to good educational materials. This is one reason why, according to the United Nations Development Programme, Peruvian children rank second worst in academic performance in Latin America. We will use environmental issues (mainly urban biodiversity) to produce materials that motivate teachers and kids to improve academic performance (i.e. reading, comprehension and verbal expression). Beneficiaries are 20 schools, 400 teachers and 12,000 students.

How will this project solve this problem?

• Design and print educational materials • Construct mobile tent • Train young trainers • Develop workshops in 20 schools and 3 municipalities • Evaluate, diffuse and transfer program materials and results.

Potential Long Term Impact

Materials and instruments are adopted by the Ministry of Education and Regional Educational Directorate and integrated into school curriculum. All Lima schools receive a visit of the educational tent, to potentially impact more than 1 million kids.
