The main objective of this Project is to promote the development of language and pre-literacy throughout early childhood before enter to the school. By working with children for several years we have discovered that many problems related with mathematics and other subjects come from problems not properly solved in Reading comprehension in early childhood. A group of professionals work with aproximately 200 children by dividing them in groups according to their age in 5 different locations.
There are 21 recorded villas (slums) in the city of Buenos Aires. Villa 21-24 in the neighborhood of Barracas is the largest in terms of number of inhabitants and geographical dimension. With a lack of overall income, family dynamics are dramatically impacted, affecting the psychological and cognitive development of the children. We seek to combat this problem through a project that offers a great variety of activities
Our objectives are to form, sustain and boost the preparation for educational of the children in Villa 21-24 and Villa 1-11-14 for social inclusion and growth opportunities. We will work to promote cognitive, social, and effective development of the children in order to prepare them for school and social life in general. Most of the children express themselves by using violence instead of using words when they face tensions between them. This Project seeks to adress this problem..
Our goals are that the children achieve significant learning capabilities in order to provide them with tools to improving their learning skills in the future and improving the abilities that they have to establish relate themselves with others children and adults
