At the beginning of this month of September, children and adolescents have started a new school cycle, which has remained "hybrid", that is, a face-to-face and a virtual part, with the aim of returning activities in schools, as long as it is health insurance.

Children from 3 to 5 years old, who are in Preschool, have not completely returned to school, education continues to be at a distance, mainly, and the educational gap is growing, for this reason, our intervention will be carried out through playful activities that strengthen motor skills, drawing, explaining the environment, among others. In addition to continuing to accompany families, to motivate school insertion.

During work, we promote improved nutrition through the delivery of snacks to all attendees, teaching the importance of balanced nutrition.

We share a video of our work in recent months, we hope you can share it so that more people join the support of indigenous working children of Chiapas:

At the beginning of this month of September, children and adolescents have started a new school cycle, which has remained "hybrid", that is, a face-to-face and a virtual part, with the aim of returning activities in schools, as long as it is health insurance.

Reality reappears, because not all children will be able to go back to school or stay in school due to various factors: income, discrimination, family neglect and having had a "mismatch" for the year of study at home, which, not all could do.

Just like school, Melel returns to her work in public spaces, beginning a cycle of Literacy in Rights, in which we will address five rights: Identity, Education, Health, Decent Work, Family; with the aim of strengthening knowledge regarding them and how to enforce them.

In addition, we will resume a cycle of Literacy for children from Merposur (a food market), who do not know how to read and write and do not have the opportunity to go to school, mainly with popular education methods.

We share a video of our work in recent months, we hope you can share it so that more people join the support of indigenous working children of Chiapas:

Active companions

The young children who attend the markets as "companions" are more than that, they actively participate in the life of the space, of their position, of their family; For this reason, we keep the early childhood space active in public markets.

We carry out fine and gross motor activities that help with basic stimulation, due to the fact that the pre-school education centers are kept closed and there is no place for recreation and learning.

Our approach to working with children is through Popular Education, which is based on the premise that “teaching is not transferring knowledge, but creating possibilities for its production or construction”. For this reason, we believe that from a young age, playful activities build meaningful experiences and meeting spaces for children accompanying the markets 

The situation of the cOVID-19 pandemic does not make it clear when they will return to face-to-face classes, education continues to be distance education and the educational gap is growing, the challenge we are to face in the following months is to know how many children going back to school?

During work, we promote improved nutrition through the delivery of snacks to all attendees, teaching the importance of balanced nutrition.

At Melel we know that we are going to have to redouble our efforts so that working children, when the time comes, go back to school.

Thank you for continuing to provide opportunities for the children of Chiapas.
