Supporting the Children Education

By Cony Perez Del Valle | Program Manager

Dear Supporters,

During this quarter we have been working together with our partners UNED and Asomacao, with the purpose of strengthening the capability of the community, for adults, children and adolescents, however, due to the current situation in Costa Rica, we have focused our work on supporting the education of the children and adolescents in the community.

We continue working with the established projects, however we have now taken an important role in Childcare. Due to the on-going strikes in Costa Rica, there has been no school for almost two months (it is very likely that this will be extended until the beginning of February 2019).  We are concerned that the children will fall behind in their studies, so now the, activities with children, include lessons covering reading, comprehension and math.  We have designed lessons to target the different age groups (between 4 -12). Environmental activities are being carried out, with the support of our partner ASOMACAO, and we are creating awareness of the importance of wildlife. 

It is important to continue supporting the children of the community. It is worth mentioning that we are also working with teenagers, who are now participating more in the Teaching English program.  We are encouraging them to remain interested in studying and not fall into social problems such as drug taking or alcoholism.  

We will continue working this way so the children from Cocal can start the next school year with strong foundations. We will also continue to motivate young people to continue participating in community study and development programs which have the potential to provide opportunities for them to move forward and improve their quality of life.

With Love, 

Costa Rica Community Team
