Summary

Yo quiero Yo puedo (IMIFAP) will reduce the school dropout and improve the quality of education and schools performance of the children in the state of Coahuila with a life skills program for teachers, children and parents.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

7.9% of the population of Coahuila lives in poverty and 31% of the population over 15 years old hasnt finished the basic education. Due to organized crime and drug trafficking, the state has lots of security problems. The education will protect children of many of the social problems that they may encounter, like violence, substance abuse and participation in gangs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through our participatory workshops based on gender equality, the children, parents and teachers will develop their life skills (e.g. self-knowledge, assertive communication, critical thinking, self-efficacy), learn to take more responsible decisions and become agents of change in their own lives and their families and communities. The teachers learn new teaching methods, the children participate more in the school and the parents start to participate more in the school work of their children.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our programs have managed to reduce school drop out rates by 24%, which has a direct positive impact on the lives of the children and their families. The program is also showing good results in the promotion of life skills, with children and their families learning to take care of themselves, be responsible, create opportunities for better living conditions, and to become agents of change of their own lives and communities Thanks to our methodology the program is sustainable in the long run.
