Summary

COVID19 continues to paralyze education. In Argentina, 1.5 million students risk dropping out, while the pandemic has further widened the educational gap between rich and poor. Less than half of public school students have access to quality distance education, compared to 75% of private school. ACDI/AVSI Argentina is responding to this challenge with "Padrinos Solidarios", a comprehensive education program that has benefited more than 3,000 children in 20 years of experience.

Challenge

The dropout rate in Argentina was already one of the highest in Latin America. According to the UNESCO, only the 48% of students finished high school on time, leading the ranking of absenteeism beside 65 countries of the Pisa tests. COVID-19 has deepened this situation. UNICEF shows that the percentage of students not receiving education has skyrocketed from 4% to 18%. Today, ACDI's efforts is centered in facilitating and encouraging children, families and schools' enjoyment of education.

Solution

Since 2001, ACDI carries on a Child Support Program that provides students, schools and families financial, pedagogical and emotional assistance. Today, "Padrinos Solidarios" benefits more than 400 children, supporting projects such as: digital inclusion, scholarships, teaching and learning materials, equipment, cultural and recreational activities, food supply and clothes for families and school canteens.

Long-Term Impact

This program works since 20 years and it's impact was proved by a university research. The dropout rate has decrease between the 10 schools involved and ACDI's method has proved to be a positive way to reverse the sense of "social inferiority" or "inability" by providing self-awareness and empowerment to children and families by promoting experiences of participation, recognition, and skills development.
