Growth with Alimentando Futuros, Chamos 2023
As the academic year draws to a close, we are delighted to share some incredible results from our education programmes.
In the Queremos Graduarnos programme, a total of 45 students sponsored by Chamos have completed their extracurricular academic requirements for the year. Seven have successfully completed their high school education completely, and are embarking on the next chapter of their lives as graduates. We couldn’t be prouder of their achievements!
Thanks to Chamos’ contribution, a total of 7,695 breakfasts have been delivered to the Niño Jesus de Praga school this year. As substantial research and evidence-based programmes have shown, a well nourished student is more likely to excel in their studies as proper nutrition positively influences cognitive development, energy levels, attendance and long-term educational success. In our work at the school, we now see that the average attendance rate of children is over 90 percent, which when compared to the national average of 65 percent, serves as a robust indicator of our success in fostering a supportive learning environment. We expect to see this excellent result reflected in the academic performance of upcoming final exams this month.
Our coding programme has directly benefited 20 students who will be graduating with a certificate in basic coding this month. Additionally, our newly equipped computer lab has been a tremendous asset to the school, benefitting over 500 students. With regular access to computers, students have been able to take full advantage of online learning resources and enhance both their digital literacy skills and education overall.
Through our support of the programme Leo, Juego y Aprendo which centers around a phonetic approach, we have brought immense benefits to 23,353 children in first and second grade. Furthermore, it has positively impacted 1,110 teachers teaching these grades, and reached a total of 311 schools spanning across 19 states in Venezuela. The widespread implementation and success of the programme signify its far-reaching impact on improving literacy and education outcomes for both students and educators alike.
Outside of the classroom, we have supported the implementation of education services for 314 children in 24 after-school centers across the country aiming to address the significant impact that strict lockdowns during the pandemic years had on children's literacy and numeracy skills.
We couldn’t do any of this without you!
Admist the challenges that lay before us, we want to thank you for being the beacon of hope for Chamos, our partners and the children we exist to serve. We deeply appreciate your unwavering commitment, and we look forward to counting on your support for the upcoming school year. Together, we can continue making a profound and positive impact, illuminating the path to a brighter future for the CHAMOS of Venezuela!
