Parents are bringing it home

What is looks like when teachers replicate!
What is looks like when teachers replicate!

Dear GlobalGivers, 

You have met Melanie on camera, one of the many empowered girls who is still in school thanks to your support, and you have seen Pepe and Lucy, key educational figures for changing attitudes and norms in indigenous Acaxochitlán, Hidalgo. Now, the program is getting close to standing on its own two feet!

These past few months, parents from across 15 schools have been bringing into their homes the attitudes and behaviors their daughters have started to adopt at school. For the first time, moms and dads expect their daughters to stay in school, and they see the value of their daughters´ education. They are even encouraging their daughters to speak up in class and be active participants in their community. Just think what this community will look like in a few years as a result! 

At the same time, week in and week out the teachers continue to replicate the program activities with their students, teaching them new life skills and implementing new methodologies for gender-equality in the classroom. And our field staff are there with them each step of the way, giving feedback and support as the teachers develop ownership over this new approach. In the photo you can see how some girls get excited from the start and others take longer to engage, which is why teachers need skills to reach both groups simultaneously.

You are the reason that girls in Acaxochitlán, Hidalgo are now aspiring to be doctors, accountants and designers. And you are the reason why they have persevered and stayed in school, moving from primary school to secondary school, to make these dreams a reality. 

With gratitude, 

Yo quiero Yo puedo
