Summary

Fabretto is launching a technology integration program in rural secondary (7th-12th grade) schools in Honduras, directly impacting at least 2,000 underserved rural youth and their 140 teachers, who otherwise would have no access to technology. Fabretto and local partner Bayan will distribute kits of hardware and digital resources to make learning accessible offline, using the open-source Kolibri platform, and train teachers to integrate tech in the classroom.

Challenge

After prolonged pandemic school closures, youth in Honduras are dropping out of school more than ever and need support to catch up. A wealth of resources exist online, but how can learners in the most remote communities of rural Honduras access them? Internet connectivity is spotty, very few homes have computers (or even electricity), and most schools have no computer labs. Furthermore, teachers need contextualized training to truly integrate technology into their teaching practices.

Solution

Fabretto's proven approach combines kits of hardware, the open source Kolibri platform, curated digital resources, and teacher training to connect rural schools to digital learning. Each kit includes a set of tablets, a laptop, and router that convert into a local server to access the content offline. In Kolibri, youth will access free, open content as well as original resources designed by Fabretto specifically for rural learners.

Long-Term Impact

With access to improved learning resources, 2,000 youth will be able to reinforce basic skills, like literacy and math, as well as enhance their learning of science, technology, and other subjects. Effective technology integration in rural secondary education will help youth stay in school and learn more, preparing them for success in university or in the workforce. Rural teachers will develop skills that will improve their teaching practice and positively impact future generations of students.
