Project Report | Mar 16, 2022
Educational crisis continous

By Silke | Development Consultant

Almost two years into the Covid-19 pandemic, the closure of most of the schools still disrupts the lives of the majority of the Guatemalan students. The conventional educational system struggles to deliver the knowledge, values and skills during online classes that our students need to evolve and exceed in life. Although the Guatemalan government stated that the new school year 2022 would start with a hybrid model, the majority of the public and private schools didn’t implement face-to-face classes yet due the limited space in schools, the weak infrastructure and lack of resources available.

Although CasaSito’s scholars got used to the new implementation of classes, they emphasize that it needs much more self-motivation and discipline, feedback from the teachers is often limited, and many feel socially isolated. In addition, the majority has to share a device with siblings and the internet signal is often so bad that they can hardly follow classes, especially in the rural areas of the country.

In order to overcome digital fatigue and demotivation, CasaSito will keep on offering psychological support and various enrichment classes that focus on the development of personal and professional life skills. Data packages will be provided to all scholars on a monthly basis throughout the year. In the CasaSito offices in Sacatepéquez and Alta Verapaz, the libraries will be equipped with computers and laptops that will be available for scholars for research and homework.
