Adapting to the enduring pandemic

Hand-out of food and greens

Our population still face the government’s imposition to “stay at home”, families have lost any opportunity to generate economic resources, and stranded without food.

 

Fortunately, we have accompanied our population from the first day. Every four days we bring them balanced and nourishing food for the whole family.

 

We keep focusing our accompaniment and educational attention on our beneficiaries, even though they aren’t allowed to show up at school yet. We bring them educational support so they can maintain or advance their educational level, and also to minimize the negative impact the pandemic has on their lives and educational and personal formation.

To be more specific, this implies accompanying the children and adolescents in their educational development, which has been digitalized as a response to COVID-19. As only 1% has access to the internet at home, which makes it impossible for them to follow the online education, implying downloading and uploading their homework. Our teachers help them with the digital part of their education and make sure that all have their homework in printed versions. This way we try to minimize the educational backwardness the digitalization cause.

We have also opened a line of psychological attention for our children and adolescents, and for their families as well.

 

We keep following all sanitary standards regarding food deliveries and visits.

 

We thank you for your support and commitment to this cause, pandemic or not.

More greens!

Continue to restore the rights of child workers du

Thank you so much for all your confidence and faith in our work. We are continuously working hard to make this world a better place for children. 

 

This year we started with great achievements, during the first four months, our team of educators:

 

  • Attended 80 children in total, 41 boys and 30 girls
  • Given 84 hours of Life Skills classes and educational reinforcement where the boys and girls have got to know themself better and improve their educational level.
  • Served 593 plates in that last four months of the year to the boys and girls participating in the program

 

However, in March our project faced the challenge of adapting its operation to the pandemic. We knew we needed to take action, the rights of child workers must continue to be guaranteed in times of crisis.

 

For this reason, since March 15 twice, we have restored the right to food by delivering 432 basic food baskets to the families of child workers in the beneficiaries' work areas and homes.

 

Thanks to your support we can cover their most basic alimentary and sanitary needs, to provide the social protection and prevent the effects of the crisis.

 

Thank you for all your support, which is what makes our work possible. 

 

Please stay safe during these difficult days for us all.
